However, rapid pharmacoresistance develops to anticonvulsants as seizure duration lengthens. Recently, acetaminophen was reported to increase endocannabinoid levels by its conversion to AM 404. Further, cannabinoids are potent anticonvulsants. Here we investigated whether acetaminophen would block SE-like… CONTINUE READING
