Epilepsy affects 5 to 10 per 1000 of the general population. It is the third most common neurological disorder after stroke and Alzheimer's disease. Available anti-convulsant drugs effectively control epilepsy in about 50% of the patients. Many epileptic seizures are refractory to current anti-epileptic drugs and safety of the anti-epileptic drugs has always been a concern. Herbal drugs may serve as the alternative for some such patients. Many plants have been used for the treatment of epilepsy in traditional system of medicines have shown useful anti-seizure activity. Herbal remedies have become popular, due in part to the lower risk of adverse reactions. Thousands of plants have been used traditionally to treat various diseases. Among them, species of the genus Piper are important medicinal plants used in various systems of medicine. The Piper longum fruit has been used in traditional medicine, including the Ayurvedic system of medicine.
