Abstract

Aim: To evaluate the effects of coadministration of vitamins alpha-tocopherol, ascorbic acid, and pyridoxine with memantine on a penicillin-induced experimental epilepsy model in rats so as to clarify the eventual interaction between these vitamins and the N-methyl-D-aspartate (NMDA) system.
