It was observed that patients on phenobarbitone alone and with drug levels above 10 'g/ml exhibited therapeutic response as compared with patients on combination. However, the patients with drug levels less than 10 'g/ml had therapeutic failure. 4. 28.8% patients showed Adverse Drug Reactions including sedation, behavioural problems, gum hypertrophy, skin eruption,cerebellar disfunction and digestive disorder. 5.
