Zarontin (ethosuximide) is an antiepileptic medication which is also called an anticonvulsant. Zarontin is used alone or in combination with other drugs in the treatment of absence seizures in adults and children. Zarontin is considered the perfect choice for treating absence seizures because it lacks the idiosyncratic hepatotoxicity of the alternative anti-absence drug, valproic acid.
