The effect of the combined administration of gamma-aminobutyric acid (GABA) and phosphatidylserine was evaluated in a pilot study of 42 patients with drug-resistant epilepsy. The group included patients with complex partial seizures, simple partial seizures and absence seizures. Patients with complex partial seizures and simple partial seizures showed no significant improvement; on the other hand, there was a remarkable decrease in absence seizures, linearly related to the dose of GABA and phosphatidylserine. Side effects occurred in 9 patients and were usually mild.
