The new antiepileptic drugs present a wide interindividual and intraindividual variability which leads us to believe that some of they may be suitable candidates for therapeutic monitoring, but at present no target ranges have been clearly defined for any of them. Therefore, routine monitoring cannot be recommended, but it may be useful to establish an individual reference level that allows control over compliance and dosage readjustment in the presence of factors that alter their pharmacokinetics. Specific prospective studies are needed to establish target ranges that allow to individualize dosage in the absence of clinical criteria and to resolve doubts about the efficacy and toxicity of these drugs. Quicker and simpler assays that make monitoring easier are also needed.

lamictal overdose death

Efficacy variables included change in seizure frequency per 28 days and the proportion of patients experiencing a ≥50% reduction in seizure frequency (50% responder rate) from Baseline to the Maintenance Phase. The proportion of patients experiencing a ≥75% reduction in seizure frequency from Baseline to the Maintenance Phase (75% responder rate) was also assessed. Safety parameters assessed were treatment-emergent adverse events (TEAEs) and discontinuation due to TEAEs. Additional safety assessments were changes in ECG and laboratory parameters as well as vital signs (including bodyweight).

Exposure to five common AEDs was associated with SRB in older VHA beneficiaries. Given the strong associations between psychiatric comorbidity and SRB, clinicians treating elderly adults should weigh this potential adverse effect into their consideration for treatment of those receiving AEDs. Particular attention should be given to depression and suicidality screening in people prescribed AEDs.

lamictal high dose

An interaction between antiepileptic drugs (AEDs) and the combined oral contraceptive pill was first proposed when the dose of estradiol in the oral contraceptive pill was reduced from 100 to 50 microg. There was a higher incidence of breakthrough bleeding and contraceptive failure among women with epilepsy compared with women in general. Since then, interaction studies have been undertaken to look for possible interactions between AEDs and the combined oral contraceptive pill. Phenobarbital (phenobarbitone), phenytoin, carbamazepine, oxcarbazepine, felbamate and topiramate have been shown to increase the metabolism of ethinylestradiol and progestogens. Therefore, if a women is on one of the AEDs and wishes to take the oral contraceptive pill, she will need to take a preparation containing at least 50 microg of ethinylestradiol. Levonorgestrel implants are contraindicated in women receiving these AEDs because of cases of contraceptive failure. It is recommended that medroxyprogesterone injections be given every 10 rather than 12 weeks to women who are receiving AEDs that induce hepatic microsomal enzymes. There are no interactions between the combined oral contraceptive pill, progesterone-only pill, medroxyprogesterone injections or levonorgestrel implants and the AEDs valproic acid (sodium valproate), vigabatrin, lamotrigine, gabapentin, tiagabine, levetiracetam, zonisamide, ethosuximide and the benzodiazepines. Therefore, normal dose contraceptive preparations can be used in patients receiving these AEDs.

Pain management is a high priority for patients with rheumatoid arthritis (RA). Despite deficiencies in research data, neuromodulators have gained widespread clinical acceptance as adjuvants in the management of patients with chronic musculoskeletal pain.

lamictal reviews bipolar

The relative neurocognitive effects of the various psychotropic antiepileptic drugs in patients with bipolar disorder were concordant with those described in the seminal literature in normal volunteers and patients with epilepsy. LMTG and OCBZ had the least neurotoxicity, and TPM, VPA, and CBZ had the most. LIT effects on neurocognition were intermediate. Choosing a mood-stabilizing drug with minimal neurocognitive effects may enhance patient compliance over the long term.

Abdominal ultrasound as well as measurement of serum fasting insulin and glucose, serum lipids and liver function parameters were performed in VPA (n=23), CBZ (n=22) and LTG (n=23) treated non-diabetic and non-obese epileptic patients compared to healthy controls (n=16).

lamictal drug test

In this study, we describe the effect of antiepileptic drugs on the production of kynurenic acid in rat cortical slices, and on the activity of kynurenic acid biosynthetic enzymes, kynurenine aminotransferases (KATs I and II) in the brain tissue. Phenobarbital, felbamate, phenytoin and lamotrigine (all at 0.5-3.0 mM) enhanced kynurenic acid production in vitro, and stimulated the activity of KAT I. In contrast, vigabatrin, gabapentin and tiagabine inhibited kynurenic acid synthesis in cortical slices with IC(50) of 3.9 (2.8-7.9), 3.7 (2.5-5.4) and 7.5 (3.5-14.3) mM, respectively. Vigabatrin, gabapentin and tiagabine reduced also the activity of KAT I with IC(50) of 1.6 (1.1-2.4), 0.1 (0.01-0.15), 0.9 (0.7-1.2) mM, and the activity of KAT II with IC(50) values of 6.0 (4.8-7.5), 0.2 (0.1-0.3) and 2.0 (1.5-2.6) mM, respectively. In conclusion, the enhancement of kynurenic acid formation displayed by carbamazepine, phenytoin, phenobarbital, felbamate and lamotrigine seems to be a novel mechanism, synergistic with other actions of these drugs, and potentially valuable in terms of better control of epilepsy.

There are several important interactions between antiepileptic drugs (AEDs) and hormonal contraception that need to be carefully considered by women with epilepsy (WWE) and their practitioners. Many AEDs induce hepatic enzymes and decrease the efficacy of hormonal contraception. In addition, estrogen-containing hormonal contraception can increase the metabolism of lamotrigine, the most commonly prescribed AED in women of childbearing age. The intrauterine device (IUD) is a highly effective form of reversible contraception without AED drug interactions that is considered by many to be the contraceptive of choice for WWE. Women with epilepsy not planning pregnancy require effective contraceptive counseling that should include discussion of an IUD. There are no guidelines, however, on who should deliver these recommendations. The objective of this study was to explore the hypothesis that contraceptive counseling by a neurologist can influence the contraceptive choices of WWE. In particular, we explored the relationship between contraceptive counseling in the epilepsy clinic and the likelihood that patients would obtain an IUD.

One hundred and thirty one patients with epilepsy were recruited and followed-up during 5 years. A detailed medical history, neurological examination, EEGs, Mini-International Neuropsychiatric Interview, executive function, and MRI were assessed. Systematically collected data were used to assess suicidality. Multiple regression analysis was carried out to examine predictive associations between clinical variables, psychiatric disorders, antiepileptic drugs and suicidality.

Despite widespread uptake of bariatric procedures for severe obesity, changes in pharmacodynamics after surgery are poorly understood. We report an epileptic patient who had a seizure following gastric bypass, although he had been asymptomatic for 30 years and without any change in his treatment. Phenytoin levels were undetectable despite a high dose. Drugs with a narrow therapeutic range such as phenytoin should be prescribed with caution after bariatric surgery.

lamictal 175 mg

A method for the analysis of the basic antiepileptic compounds felbamate, lamotrigine, carbamazepine, carbamazepine-10,11-epoxide, gabapentin, pregabalin, levetiracetam, and oxcarbazepine monohydroxy derivative (oxcarb MHD) in human plasma is described. This protocol incorporates a simplified sample preparation step followed by quantitative high performance chromatography-tandem mass spectrometry detection of commonly prescribed and monitored anticonvulsant drugs. Since polytherapy is common in epilepsy patients, use of a multiconstituent assay can improve laboratory efficiency and reduce required analytical time.

Patients with glioblastoma (GBM) often suffer from symptomatic epilepsy. Older antiepileptic drugs (AEDs) which affect the enzyme system cytochrome P450 have been in extensive use, but there is an increasing focus on interactions with other drugs. This study investigated whether newer AEDs with little or no enzyme effect are increasingly preferred. Previous research has indicated that valproate improves survival in GBM. We investigated the impact of AEDs on overall survival in GBM patients. All GBM patients diagnosed in Norway 2004-2010 were included through a linkage of national registries, and follow-up data on the malignancy and drug usage were analyzed. In a multivariate cox proportional-hazards regression, AEDs were adjusted for each other and for relevant factors. Immortal time bias was eliminated with time-dependent variables. The study population was 1263 patients with histologically confirmed GBM. Carbamazepine was the most frequently prescribed AED to patients diagnosed with GBM during 2004-2006, while levetiracetam was increasingly prescribed to patients diagnosed later. Taking AEDs on a reimbursement code of epilepsy was not beneficial for survival. None of the six AEDs valproate, levetiracetam, carbamazepine, oxcarbazepine, lamotrigine or phenytoin significantly altered overall survival. There has been a shift in the prescriptions of AEDs to GBM patients from older to newer AEDs over time. We found no significant survival benefit in GBM patients neither from treatment with AEDs for epilepsy in general, nor from the usage of six separate AEDs.

Amitriptyline, lamotrigine, and gabapentin provide a more favorable efficacy and safety profile than the classic antiepileptic drugs carbamazepine and phenytoin, for which no placebo-controlled evidence of efficacy was found. Clinical trials are urgently needed to optimize pharmacologic treatment of CPSP.

38 patients were randomly divided into two groups, one given LTG (n = 18) and the other given LTG + VPA(n = 20). The first group consisted of 10 females (32.50 +/- 12.46 years old, 67.80 +/- 15.18 kg) and 8 males (24.88 +/- 8.92 years old, 69.88 +/- 11.41 kg) and the second group consisted of 9 females (28.33 +/- 6.52 years old, 62.89 +/- 13.28 kg) and 11 males (37.64 +/- 10.43 years old, 85.64 +/- 15.4 kg). Patients were either administered an oral dose of LTG (157 +/- 74 mg/day) or LTG + VPA (150 +/- 83.11 mg/day & 774 +/- 330 mg/day respectively). LTG steady state serum concentrations were determined 1.5-8 h post dose. Analyses were performed by a validated HPLC method.

The mean steady-state plasma concentration of lamotrigine (LTG) was 13 micro mol/L in 22 women taking LTG in combination oral contraceptives (OC) compared with 28 micro mol/L among 30 women on LTG who did not take OC (p < 0.0001). The LTG dose/body weight/plasma concentration was 2.1 L/kg/day in women on OC compared with 0.8 L/kg/day in women without OC (p < 0.0001), indicating that LTG plasma levels are reduced by >50% during OC co-medication. It is advisable to monitor LTG plasma levels in conjunction with initiation or withdrawal of OC in women on LTG therapy.

Approximately 60-80% of girls with Rett Syndrome (RTT) have epilepsy, which represents one of the most severe problems clinicians have to deal with, especially when patients are 7-12years old. The aim of this study was to analyze the antiepileptic drugs (AEDs) prescribed in RTT, and to assess their effectiveness and tolerability in different age groups from early infancy to adulthood. We included in this study 104 girls, aged 2-42years (mean age 13.9years): 89 had a mutation in MECP2, 5 in CDKL5, 2 in FOXG1, and the mutational status was unknown in the remaining 8. Epilepsy was present in 82 patients (79%). Mean age at epilepsy onset was 4.1years. We divided the girls into 5 groups according to age: <5, 5-9, 10-14, 15-19, 20years and older. Valproic acid (VPA) was the most prescribed single therapy in young patients (<15years), whereas carbamazepine (CBZ) was preferred by clinicians in older patients. The most frequently adopted AED combination in the patients younger than 10years and older than 15 was VPA and lamotrigine (LTG). Seizures in the group aged 10-14years were the most difficult to treat, requiring a mean of three different AEDs, often used in combination and mostly including VPA. Seizures in fifteen patients (18%) were considered drug resistant. VPA was reported as the most effective AED in younger girls (in 40% of the patients aged <5years, in 19% of the girls aged 5-9years), and CBZ the most effective in the patients 15years or older. Adverse reactions did not differ from expected: agitation, drowsiness, and weight loss were the most frequently reported. In our sample, LTG was the least tolerated AED. We did not find correlations with MECP2 mutations in terms of effectiveness or adverse reactions.

Previous reports characterized the effects of administration of single oral doses of antiepileptic drugs (AED) on cortical excitability. However, AED effects on cortical excitability, and their relationship to plasma blood levels, during chronic drug administration at therapeutic doses are not known. The objective of the study was to determine whether plasma blood levels during chronic administration at therapeutic doses would accurately predict changes in corticomotor excitability.

The role of brain-derived neurotrophic factor (BDNF) is to promote and modulate neuronal responses across neurotransmitter systems in the brain. Therefore, abnormal BDNF signaling may be associated with the pathophysiology of schizophrenia. Low BDNF levels have been reported in brains and serums of patients with psychotic disorders. In the present study, we investigated the effects of antiepileptic drugs on BDNF in developing rats. Pregnant rats were treated with phenytoin (PHT), lamotrigine (LTG) and folic acid for long-term, all through their gestational periods. Experimental epilepsy (EE) model was applied in pregnant rats. Epileptic seizures were determined with electroencephalography. After birth, serum BDNF levels were measured in 136 newborn rats on postnatal day (PND) 21 and postnatal day 38. In postnatal day 21, serum BDNF levels of experimental epilepsy group were significantly lower compared with PHT group. This decrease is statistically significant. Serum BDNF levels increased in the group LTG. This increase compared with LTG+EE group was statistically significant. In the folic acid (FA) group, levels of serum BDNF decreased statistically significantly compared to the PHT group. On postnatal day 38, no significant differences were found among the groups for serum BDNF levels. We concluded that, the passed seizures during pregnancy adversely affect fetal brain development, lowering of serum BDNF levels. PHT use during pregnancy prevents seizure-induced injury by increasing the levels of BDNF. About the increase level of BDNF, LTG is much less effective than PHT, the positive effect of folic acid on serum BDNF levels was not observed. LTG increase in BDNF is much less effective than PHT, folic acid did not show a positive effect on serum BDNF levels. Epilepsy affects fetal brain development during gestation in pregnant rats, therefore anti-epileptic therapy should be continued during pregnancy.

lamictal 350 mg

The effect of a single oral dose of various antiepileptic drugs on the excitability of the motor system was studied in healthy volunteers by means of transcranial magnetic stimulation. Motor threshold, duration of the cortical silent period, and intracortical excitability after double-shock transcranial stimulation were tested before and at defined intervals after drug intake. Antiepileptic drugs that support the action of the inhibitory neurotransmitter gamma-aminobutyric acid (GABA) in the neocortex (vigabatrin, baclofen) reduced intracortical excitability but had no effect on motor threshold. Gabapentin, whose mechanism of action has not yet been unequivocally identified, showed a similar profile. By contrast, sodium and calcium channel blockers without considerable neurotransmitter properties (carbamazepine, lamotrigine, losigamone) elevated motor threshold but did not change intracortical excitability. The cortical silent period was lengthened by gabapentin and carbamazepine. Changes in peripheral motor excitability (maximum M wave, peripheral silent period) were not observed. We conclude that the changes in intracortical excitability are caused by GABA-controlled interneuronal circuits in the motor cortex while changes in motor threshold are dependent on ion channel conductivity and may reflect membrane excitability. Transcranial magnetic stimulation may be a promising noninvasive approach to study the selective effects of antiepileptic drugs on brain function.

Lamotrigine (LTG) is a popular modern antiepileptic drug (AED); however, its mechanism of action has yet to be fully understood, as it is known to modulate many members of several ion channel families. In heterologous systems, LTG inhibits Cav 2.3 (R-type) calcium currents, which contribute to kainic-acid (KA)-induced epilepsy in vivo. To gain insight into the role of R-type currents in LTG drug action in vivo, we compared the effects of LTG to two other AEDs in Cav 2.3-deficient mice buy lamictal and controls on KA-induced seizures.

NaV 1.2 and NaV 1.3 subunits have a relatively slow recovery from inactivation, compared with the other subunits and NaV 1.1 subunits generate the largest window current buy lamictal . Lamotrigine evokes a larger maximal shift of the steady-state inactivation relationship than carbamazepine or phenytoin. Carbamazepine shows the highest binding rate to the α-subunits. Lamotrigine binding to NaV 1.1 subunits is faster than to the other α-subunits. Lamotrigine unbinding from the α-subunits is slower than that of carbamazepine and phenytoin.

Comparative pharmacokinetic data obtained with different preparations of lamotrigine (LTG) are reported for the first time. Nine outpatients reporting problems attributed to shifts in the preparation of LTG used were admitted to hospital. Patients were treated with proprietary LTG for at least 2 weeks prior to admission. Daily profiles (DPs) spanning 24 hours were obtained by blood sampling at 3- or buy lamictal 4-hour intervals on Day 3 after admission. A second DP was obtained under similar conditions after generic LTG therapy for at least 7 days. LTG concentrations were determined by HPLC, and DPs were generated to compare pharmacokinetic parameters. In five of nine patients, parameters deviated beyond +/-10%. Even with the narrower bioequivalence requirements for mandatory substitution in Denmark, there are some patients who experienced serious clinical consequences (relapse in a seizure-free patient, status epilepticus, epidural hematoma due to ataxia with falls) in association with a change in preparation, and significant corresponding alterations in plasma levels could be demonstrated by comparative pharmacokinetic testing.

Lacosamide was tested in the streptozotocin rat model of diabetic neuropathic pain in comparison to drugs which are commonly used in the treatment of diabetic neuropathic pain, i.e. antidepressants and anticonvulsants. In diabetic rats, lacosamide attenuated cold (10, 30 mg/kg, i.p.), warm (3, 10, 30 mg/kg, i.p.) and mechanical allodynia (30 mg/kg, i.p.). Streptozotocin-induced thermal and mechanical hyperalgesia were reduced by lacosamide at doses of 10 and 30 mg/kg, i buy lamictal .p. Morphine (3 mg/kg) showed similar efficacy on allodynia and hyperalgesia. Amitriptyline (10 mg/kg), venlafaxine (15 mg/kg), levetiracetam (180 mg/kg) and pregabalin (100 mg/kg) exhibited significant effects on thermal allodynia and mechanical hyperalgesia. Only treatment with amitriptyline (30 mg/kg, i.p.) produced full reversal of thermal allodynia comparable to lacosamide. Lamotrigine (45 mg/kg, i.p.) had no effect on both behavioral readouts. Lacosamide's potency and efficacy in reversing pain behavior might be due to its new, yet unknown mechanism of action.

Lamotrigine is an anticonvulsant with a broad spectrum of activity that has been approved in the United States for use in adults with either partial or generalized seizures. This drug is being widely prescribed by pediatricians and neurologists because it is effective in children with idiopathic, resistant, generalized seizures and does not impair cognition. As with other anticonvulsants, a hypersensitivity syndrome has been described. Anticonvulsant hypersensitivity syndrome consists of the hallmark features of fever, rash, and lymphadenopathy. We report the first case of hypersensitivity syndrome in a child due to lamotrigine in which we believe the coadministration of valproic acid increased the duration of the reaction. Our patient had a high spiking fever, generalized morbilliform eruption, facial edema, lymphadenopathy, eosinophilia, atypical lymphocytosis, and an elevation in his liver function tests. The syndrome resolved with the discontinuation of the medication. buy lamictal Anticonvulsant hypersensitivity syndrome may occur with the administration of lamotrigine. Variable presentations may be seen, as hypersensitivity syndromes may be multisystem in nature. The prompt recognition of the signs and symptoms of this condition allows an accurate diagnosis so that the drug may be discontinued and other anticonvulsant treatment options instituted.

Prepulse inhibition of the startle response (PPI), a model of sensorimotor gating, is deficient in persons with schizophrenia. In rodents, the reversal of induced Coreg With Alcohol deficits in PPI demonstrates predictive validity for identifying antipsychotic treatments. Metabotropic glutamate receptor 5 (mGluR5) has been implicated in schizophrenia, in part because mGluR5 knockout (KO) mice exhibit PPI deficits.

Orally disintegrating tablets (ODTs) are challenged by the need for simple technology to ensure good mechanical strength coupled with rapid disintegration. The objective of this work was to evaluate microwave-assisted development of ODTs based on simple direct compression tableting technology. Placebo ODTs comprising directly compressible mannitol and lactose as diluents, super disintegrants, and lubricants were prepared by direct compression followed by exposure to >97% relative humidity and then microwave irradiation for 5 min at 490 W. Placebo ODTs with hardness (>5 kg/cm(2)) and disintegration time (<60 s) were optimized. Palatable ODTs of Lamotrigine (LMG), which exhibited rapid dissolution of LMG, were then developed. The stability of LMG to microwave irradiation (MWI) was confirmed. Solubilization was achieved by complexation with beta-cyclodextrin (β-CD). LMG ODTs with optimal hardness and disintegration time (DT) were optimized by a 2(3) factorial design using Design Expert software. Taste masking using sweeteners and flavors was confirmed using a potentiometric multisensor-based electronic tongue, coupled with principal component analysis. Placebo ODTs with crospovidone as a superdisintegrant revealed a significant increase in hardness from ∼3 to ∼5 kg/cm(2) and a decrease in disintegration time (<60 s) following microwave irradiation. LMG ODTs had hardness >5 kg/cm(2), DT < 30s, and rapid dissolution of LMG, and good stability was optimized by DOE and the design space derived. While β-CD complexation enabled rapid dissolution and moderate taste masking, palatability, which was achieved including flavors, was confirmed using an electronic tongue. A simple step of humidification enabled MWI-facilitated development of ODTs by direct compression presenting a practical Nizoral Dosage Directions and scalable advancement in ODT technology.

The aim of this study was to investigate the acoustic effects of lamotrigine in pediatric epileptic patients. Newly diagnosed 52 pediatric epileptic patients were assessed standard speech test through a Computerized Speech Lab applied before the beginning of therapy with lamotrigine and 2months Diflucan Single Dose after dosage had been stabilized. The voice onset times for /t/, /k(h)/, /p'/ and /t'/ after the therapy and those for /p/, /k/, /p(h)/, /t(h)/ and /k'/ was not affected. Total durations for all stop consonants did not change significantly except that lenis /p/ and /k/ increased significantly (P<0.05). No noteworthy alteration was observed for mean pitch and speaking rate of counting 1-10. Vowel formants and precise articulation rate remained the same. In conclusion, no significant effects of lamotrigine on speech were found in this study. Lamotrigine is safe for acoustic function in pediatric patients.

Of 12 patients with refractory childhood absence epilepsy, 9 became seizure free; in one child with absences with eyelid myoclonia, absence frequency was reduced > 50%; in 2 children with absences with a mild atonic component, seizure reduction was only transient. Of 12 patients with juvenile absence epilepsy, 10 became seizure-free and, in 2, a > 50% reduction was obtained. In 15 patients with juvenile myoclonic epilepsy, complete seizure control was achieved in 7 patients, in 6 patients myoclonia persisted. In one patient generalized tonic-clonic seizures also persisted and another patient developed a rash, LTG was therefore stopped. Of 5 patients with grand-mal on awakening, 3 became seizure-free, and a reduction of > 50% was obtained in one patient; LTG was stopped in one patient because of poor compliance. Three patients with pure photosensitive epilepsy became seizure-free. At the end of the study, 11 patients were seizure-free on LTG monotherapy, and in most other patients concomitant AED dosage could Cytoxan User Reviews be substantially reduced.

La syndrome de Stevens-Johnson (SJS) et la nécrolyse épidermique toxique sont des maladies dans le spectre de réactions cutanées graves affectant la peau et les muqueuses. Les médicaments antiépileptiques sont utilisés en combinaison, et ceci peut provoquer des effets indésirables. Ici, nous rapportons un cas rare de SJS déclenché par une combinaison de clobazam, la lamotrigine et l’acide valproïque chez un garçon de 7 ans. En raison de l’ insuffisante maîtrise des crises, le lorazépam a été utilisé avec le clobazam. Quatre semaines après l’ajout de clobazam, le patient a développé SJS avec une éruption cutanée généralisée, de la fièvre. Il y avait Omnicef Suspension Price la participation de la foie et les reins, et une éosinophilie, une semaine après le début du traitement. Tous les médicaments antiépileptiques ont été abandonnées, et la méthylprednisolone intraveineuse, des antibiotiques systémiques prophylactiques, supplément de liquide par voie intraveineuse, antipyrétique, les soins des plaies spécial, et de soutien pour les soins médicaux ont été administrés. Il a été libéré dans un état stable la 18ème journée. Notre cas suggère qu’une interaction médicamenteuse entre le valproate, la lamotrigine et clobazam ait contribué au développement de SJS. Lorsque le clobazam a été ajouté à l’acide valproïque et la lamotrigine, la dose de lamotrigine aurait dû être diminué.

Term placentas from healthy mothers without medications were perfused in a recirculating dual perfusion system. LTG (2.5 microg/ml, n=4; 10 microg/ml, n=4) and reference compound antipyrine (100 microg/ml) were added into the maternal circulation. The disappearance of drugs from the maternal circulation and appearance into the foetal circulation was followed every 15 min up to 2 h. Drug concentrations were analysed using high Ventolin Cost -performance liquid chromatography. In addition to human placental perfusions, we analysed LTG concentrations in maternal vein and cord blood samples after delivery from two epileptic mothers receiving LTG therapy during pregnancy.

Lacosamide did not prolong the QTc interval or affect heart rate as determined by an analysis of data from patients randomized to lacosamide 200, 400, or 600 mg/day (n = 944) compared with placebo (n = 364). After 12-week maintenance treatment, mean changes from baseline for QRS duration were similar between the placebo and lacosamide 200 and 400 mg/day groups (0.0, -0.2, and 0.4 ms), but slightly increased for lacosamide 600 mg/day (2.3 ms). A small, dose-related mean increase in PR interval was observed (-0.3, 1.4, 4.4, and 6.6 ms for the placebo and lacosamide 200, 400, and 600 mg/day groups, respectively). First-degree atrioventricular (AV) block was reported as a non-serious AE in 0.0%, 0.7%, 0.2%, and 0.5% of patients in the same respective groups. Second- or higher degree AV block was not observed. There was no evidence of a PR-interval-related pharmacodynamic interaction of lacosamide with either carbamazepine or lamotrigine.
