Resources

At Desitin Pharma we understand the importance of, and have a good insight into, the issues around treatment adherence, and especially the need to choose the right age- and ability-appropriate AED formulation. With this in mind, we have developed a range of valuable support materials for you and your patients – especially paediatric and learning disability patients – being treated with Desitrend®, that we believe will help them achieve the goal of becoming seizure free.
