Several investigators have synthesized AChE inhibitors like alkylpyridium polymers [19], dehydroevodiamine (DHED) [20], N-arylsubstituted succinimides [21], lycorine derivatives [22], salicylanilide N-alkylcarbamates [23], and 7-methoxytacrineadamantylamine heterodimers [24].
In contrast, first-generation AEDs that do not appear to be associated with a significant risk of birth defects include the benzodiazepines (clonazepam [Klonopin], clorazepate [Tranxene], diazepam [Valium], and lorazepam [Ativan]) and succinimides (ethosuximide [Zarontin] and methsuximide [Celontin]).
