topamax medication uses

We analyzed the effect of combination therapy on seizure frequency in all adult patients (N=193) with focal epilepsy followed at a single institution in a cross-sectional study. One hundred and thirty-five patients were on two AEDs, of them, 37 (27%) were seizure-free, 50 patients were on three AEDs including 5 (10%) seizure-free patients (p<0.01 for seizure-freedom with two AEDs versus three AEDs). Thirty-five different combinations were used in patients on two AEDs and 40 combinations on patients on three drugs emphasizing the difficulties involved in evaluation of the efficacy and tolerability of specific combinations. The significant proportion of seizure-free cases (27%) on duotherapy is suggesting the usefulness of combination therapy in achieving seizure-freedom in epilepsies refractory to single drug treatment. The material in the study was not from a randomized trial and therefore the comparability of patients on different AEDs is uncertain, but on the other hand the clinical practice followed provides a natural experiment suitable for comparative, non-randomized assessment of treatment outcomes.

Single-dose and repeated TPM treatments were without effect on all of the parameters investigated, although the drug was detectable in the brain at doses of > or =10 mg/kg.

Anticonvulsant drugs have been used in the treatment of alcohol addiction with relatively good results. The purpose of the present study was to evaluate tolerance and safety of topiramate in patients presenting alcohol dependence.

Prader-Willi syndrome (PWS) is the result of a lack of expression of genes on the paternally derived chromosome 15q11-q13 and can be considered as a hypothalamic disorder. Its behavioral phenotype is characterized by ritualistic, stereotyped, and compulsive behaviors as well as motor abnormalities. After adolescence, recurrent affective psychoses are relatively frequent, especially in patients with uniparental disomy. These psychotic states have a subacute onset with complete recovery and comprise an increase of psychomotor symptoms that show resemblance with catatonia. Some evidence has emerged that gamma-aminobutyric acid (GABA) dysfunctionality is involved in both PWS and catatonia. Treatment of these atypical psychoses should preferably include GABA mimetic compounds like lorazepam, valproic acid, and possibly topiramate.

Aggressive symptomatology presents across multiple psychiatric, developmental, neurological and behavioral disorders, complicating the diagnosis and treatment of the underlying pathology. Anti-Epileptic Drugs (AEDs) have become an appealing alternative in the treatment of aggression, mood lability and impulsivity in adult and pediatric populations, although few controlled trials have explored their efficacy in treating pediatric populations. This review of the literature synthesizes the available data on ten AEDs - valproate, carbamazepine, oxcarbazepine, phenytoin, lamotrigine, topiramate, levetiracetam, zonisamide, gabapentin and tiagabine - in an attempt to assess evidence for the efficacy of AEDs in the treatment of aggression in pediatric populations. Our review revealed modest evidence that some of the AEDs produced improvement in pediatric aggression, but controlled trials in pediatric bipolar disorder have not been promising. Valproate is the best supported AED for aggression and should be considered as a first line of treatment. When monotherapy is insufficient, combining an AED with either lithium or an atypical anti-psychotic can result in better efficacy. Additionally, our review indicates that medications with predominately GABA-ergic mechanisms of action are not effective in treating aggression, and medications which decrease glutaminergic transmission tended to have more cognitive adverse effects. Agents with multiple mechanisms of action may be more effective.

In this study, we assessed the effects of topiramate (TPM) on high-voltage-activated calcium channel (HVACC) currents in vitro.

Significantly higher pain scores were observed in the topiramate group postoperatively for 2 h on all pain scales (p<0.05). Lamotrigine-treated patients were more comfortable throughout the study with significantly less (p<0.05) postoperative analgesic requirement comparable to gabapentin.

Recent evidence suggests that lithium therapy (even as supplemented by antidepressants and neuroleptics) is inadequate for the majority of patients with bipolar illness, and particularly those with rapid cycling. Valproate and carbamazepine have emerged as adjuncts and alternatives, but they, too, often require additional approaches with lithium, thyroid hormones, and other putative mood stabilizers, including nimodipine (and related dihydropyridine calcium channel blockers), lamotrigine, gabapentin, topiramate, and the atypical neuroleptics. Evaluating how these agents and the unimodal antidepressants are optimally applied and sequenced in the treatment of bipolar illness with its multiple subtypes, patterns and comorbidities will require much future investigation and the development of new methodological clinical trial approaches.

Maximal electroshock (MES)-induced mouse seizure model was used for the estimation of the anticonvulsant activity of TPM whilst the protective activity of GBP was evaluated in the threshold test for maximal (tonic) convulsions. Adverse effects were evaluated by measurement of long-term memory (the step-through passive avoidance task) and motor coordination (chimney test). Plasma AED concentrations were also measured to determinate any pharmacokinetic contribution to the observed effects.

Topiramate has been recently licensed as an antiepileptic drug. A fluorescence polarization immunoassay (FPIA), the Innofluor, has been developed to determine topiramate in heparinized plasma. Since therapeutic drug monitoring laboratories may not have control over collection of the samples submitted to them, it is important for analytical methods to be robust and able to cope with any specimen. The effect of different anticoagulants on the topiramate FPIA assay was investigated by collecting blood from 50 patients with epilepsy being maintained on a range of topiramate doses as part of their therapy. After venesection the blood was divided among four tubes: plain, heparinized, EDTA, and fluoride/oxalate. Erythrocytes were separated by centrifugation and supernatant fluid frozen to await duplicate assay by FPIA. Results were compared by means of Altman and Bland difference plots which indicated that there was no significant difference between values obtained with heparinized plasma and the other fluids. It was concluded that the Innofluor assay is robust and gives similar results when blood samples are collected into any of the specified anticoagulants.

Forty infants under 2 years with clinically- and EEG-proven infantile spasms that did not respond to prednisone (2mg/kg/day in 2 divided doses) were recruited and randomized into 2 groups. They were randomly assigned to either topiramate (group 1; 1mg/kg/day for 3 days then increased by 1mg/kg/day every third day up to 6mg/kg/day) or levetiracetam (group 2; 10mg/kg/day for 5 days and then increased by 10mg/kg/day every 5 days up to 60mg/kg/day). The study was conducted in the Pediatric Neurology Department at the National Neuroscience Institute of King Fahad Medical City, Riyadh, Kingdom of Saudi Arabia between January 2008 and December 2010.

In total, the data of 562 patients were assessed, of which 90 % received up to six different AEDs. The proportion of off-label use with regard to dosage varied between 6.4 and 64.7 %. Levetiracetam and oxcarbazepine as an extended-release formulation were most commonly used, and levetiracetam showed the best tolerance. By using logistic regression, the occurrence of ADRs was significantly associated with the number of AEDs (p < 0.001) as well as the defined daily doses (p = 0.003). In total, ADRs of AEDs were documented for 318 patients (56.6 %). The most common referred to electrolyte imbalance, e.g., low sodium (n = 79, 14.1 %) and potassium (n = 25, 4.4 %) levels, the central nervous system, including dizziness (n = 61, 10.9 %), disturbed vision (n = 47, 8.4 %), fatigue (n = 40, 7.1 %), nystagmus (n = 36, 6.4 %) and ataxia (n = 29, 5.2 %), or cognitive deficits, especially disturbance of speech (n = 37, 6.6 %), memory impairment (n = 36, 6.4 %) and mental slowing (n = 32, 5.7 %). By comparing the assessed ADR incidences with specification data, for some ADRs, a probable underestimation by the SmPC of respective risk could be assumed.

Blood (serum/plasma) antiepileptic drug (AED) therapeutic drug monitoring (TDM) has proven to be an invaluable surrogate marker for individualizing and optimizing the drug management of patients with epilepsy. Since 1989, there has been an exponential increase in AEDs with 23 currently licensed for clinical use, and recently, there has been renewed and extensive interest in the use of saliva as an alternative matrix for AED TDM. The advantages of saliva include the fact that for many AEDs it reflects the free (pharmacologically active) concentration in serum; it is readily sampled, can be sampled repetitively, and sampling is noninvasive; does not require the expertise of a phlebotomist; and is preferred by many patients, particularly children and the elderly. For each AED, this review summarizes the key pharmacokinetic characteristics relevant to the practice of TDM, discusses the use of other biological matrices with particular emphasis on saliva and the evidence that saliva concentration reflects those in serum. Also discussed are the indications for salivary AED TDM, the key factors to consider when saliva sampling is to be undertaken, and finally, a practical protocol is described so as to enable AED TDM to be applied optimally and effectively in the clinical setting. Overall, there is compelling evidence that salivary TDM can be usefully applied so as to optimize the treatment of epilepsy with carbamazepine, clobazam, ethosuximide, gabapentin, lacosamide, lamotrigine, levetiracetam, oxcarbazepine, phenobarbital, phenytoin, primidone, topiramate, and zonisamide. Salivary TDM of valproic acid is probably not helpful, whereas for clonazepam, eslicarbazepine acetate, felbamate, pregabalin, retigabine, rufinamide, stiripentol, tiagabine, and vigabatrin, the data are sparse or nonexistent.

We acquired the retention data on levetiracetam (LEV), lamotrigine (LTG), oxcarbazepine (OXC), topiramate (TPM), and zonisamide (ZNS) from the electronic database. The data included patient's age, gender, seizure type, current and previous medications, dosage, main reasons for discontinuation, and duration of therapy. The retention rates of these AEDs were evaluated at 4, 12, 24, 52, and 104 weeks.

Since 90s of the XX century, there are experimental data available pointing to the caffeine-induced impairment of the protective activity of a number of antiepileptic drugs in basic models of epilepsy in rodents. Acute caffeine, in doses far below its convulsive potential (almost 10-20 fold lower than the ED50 of the methylxanthine of 2.03 mmol/kg for the induction of seizures), produced a significant reduction in the anticonvulsant effects of carbamazepine, phenobarbital, phenytoin, and valproate against maximal electroshock-induced seizures in mice. This interaction was pharmacodynamic in nature since caffeine did not affect the plasma concentrations of these anti-epileptics. Interestingly, there was no tolerance to this hazardous effect of caffeine since its administration at the same dosages (0.12-0.24 mmollkg) also resulted in the impairment of the protection provided by antiepileptic drugs, this effect being even more pronounced in the case of phenobarbital and carbamazepine. In case of newer antiepileptics, both acute and chronic caffeine decreased the protective potential of gabapentin and topiramate but not that of lamotrigine and tiagabine.

An open-label, observational prospective study assessed the effectiveness of topiramate (TPM) as add-on therapy. A total of 450 patients aged 12 and above with a diagnosis of epilepsy and at least one epileptic seizure during the 12-week retrospective baseline were to be documented. After baseline evaluation, topiramate was added. Ninety-five percent of patients had at least one baseline AED, most commonly Carbamazepine (53%) or Valproate (34%). In 5% TPM was started in monotherapy. Topiramate dose titration and target dose was determined by clinical response and side effect profile. Patients were intended to be followed for a total of 1 year which included 6 visits during which seizure frequency, adverse events, weight as well as clinical global impression were recorded. During the 12 weeks retrospective baseline, a median of 2.8 seizures per month were recorded which reduced significantly to 0.7 per month during the complete treatment phase (p < 0.0001). Seventy-two percent of patients had a > or =50% seizure reduction. Ten percent of patients were seizure free during the study. The most commonly reported adverse events were difficulties with memory (4.2%), somnolence (3.6%), and dizziness (2.7%). Overall, topiramate was well tolerated, and only 5% of patients discontinued treatment due to an adverse event. Retention in the study was higher than previously reported during randomized, dose controlled studies and is likely due to individualized doses as well as slower titration used.

Combinations of TPM+FBM at the fixed ratios of 1:3, 1:1, and 3:1 offered supraadditive (synergistic) interactions against electroconvulsions and subadditivity (antagonism) in terms of acute neurotoxic effects in the chimney test (BIs ranged between 1.90 and 2.59, the best combinations from a preclinical point of view). The examined combinations of TPM+OXC also were advantageous due to synergistic interactions in the MES, and additivity in terms of acute neurotoxic effects produced by the AEDs (BIs ranged between 1.35 and 1.71). In contrast, OXC+FBM exerted subadditive (antagonistic) interactions in the MES test and additive interactions in terms of acute motor impairment of animals (BIs ranged between 0.53 and 0.71). The worst combination was observed for OXC+LTG, at the fixed ratio of 1:1, displaying subadditivity (antagonism) against electroconvulsions and supraadditivity (synergy) with respect to neurotoxicity (BIs, 0.43). The remaining combinations of OXC+LTG tested (i.e., 1:3 and 3:1) exerted additivity in the MES test and supraadditivity in the chimney test (BIs 0.54 and 0.49, respectively). None of the studied AEDs affected the brain concentrations of other AEDs, so the existence of any pharmacokinetic interactions to be responsible for the observed effects is improbable.

The purpose of this study was to determine which foods and/or drinks are capable of reducing the bitterness of topiramate when consumed together with the medicine. The inhibitory effects of foods/drinks (yoghurt and nine other foods/drinks) on the bitterness of topiramate (5 mg/mL) were evaluated with a taste sensor using a bitterness-responsive membrane (C00). The effect of topiramate on the taste characteristics of the foods/drinks themselves was also evaluated by taste sensor outputs. The viscosities of the foods/drinks and the influence of the lactic acid and orotic acid components of yoghurt, the most successful of the tested substances in taste masking, on the bitterness of topiramate were also measured. Yoghurt was predicted to be the most effective of the foods/drinks tested in reducing the acidic bitterness-responsive sensor output of topiramate. The outputs of the astringency sensor, sourness sensor, and saltiness sensor to yoghurt were not reduced by the addition of topiramate. The viscosity and lactic acid and orotic acid components of yoghurt seemed to be the keys in reducing the bitterness of topiramate. Yoghurt is predicted to be the food/drink most capable of reducing the bitterness of topiramate without losing the taste of the food/drink itself.

A total of 125 patients were included in each group. No significant differences were found between the groups as regards mean age or the average number of migraines in the previous month. With both drugs there was a significant decrease (0.0001) in the mean number of episodes in the fourth month of treatment, but with no significant difference between them: topiramate (5.88 +/- 3.7 to 2.1 +/- 2.5) and flunarizine (5.24 +/- 3.2 to 2.3 +/- 2.7). The mean reduction in the number of migraines at the fourth month was 58.2 +/- 38.2% with topiramate, and 55.4 +/- 37.5% with flunarizine. The respondent rate was 71% with topiramate and 67% with flunarizine. The percentage of dropouts with topiramate (28%) was higher than with flunarizine (11%) (0.0013). With topiramate 69 patients reported side effects and 53 patients reported them with flunarizine (0.0427).

No significant impact of perampanel on clearance was found for clonazepam (n = 81), levetiracetam (n = 330), phenobarbital (n = 54), phenytoin (n = 90), topiramate (n = 226 buy topamax ) or zonisamide (n = 93). Statistically significant, but small and not clinically relevant increases in model-predicted clearance were detected for carbamazepine (+4.3% with 12 mg perampanel; n = 379), clobazam (+3.4% males, +7.7% females, 12 mg; n = 114), lamotrigine (+9.3%, 12 mg; n = 356), and valproic acid (+5.0%, 12 mg; n = 349). Oxcarbazepine clearance was reduced (26%; n = 200), but the clinical relevance is unclear as levels of the active metabolite (the monohydroxy derivative of oxcarbazepine) were not measured.

In a novel double-blind trial, topiramate was compared with the investigator's choice of carbamazepine or valproate as first-line therapy in patients as young as 6 years of age with newly diagnosed epilepsy. Among 613 patients enrolled in the trial, 119 (19%) were children or adolescents (6-16 years of age). No differences between fixed doses of topiramate (100 and 200 mg/day) and carbamazepine (600 mg/day) or valproate (1250 mg/day) were observed in efficacy buy topamax measures: time to exit, time to first seizure, and the proportion of patients who were seizure free during the last 6 months of treatment. Topiramate 100 mg/day (2.0 mg/kg/day in this study population) was associated with the fewest discontinuations owing to side effects. Based on efficacy and tolerability, the recommended target dose for topiramate as first-line therapy in children and adolescents is 100 mg/day.

This is a case report describing recurrent intermittent acute angle closure episodes in the setting of topiramate use in a female suffering from migraines. Despite laser peripheral iridotomy placement for the pupillary block component, and the discontinuation of topiramate, the acute angle closure did not resolve in the left eye with chronic angle closure and the patient required urgent trabeculectomy. The right eye responded to laser peripheral iridotomy immediately and further improved after the cessation of topiramate. While secondary angle closure glaucoma due to topiramate use has been widely reported, its effects in patients with underlying primary buy topamax angle closure glaucoma have not been discussed. Our report highlights the importance of recognizing the often multifactorial etiology of angle closure glaucoma to help guide clinical management.

Evidence has accumulated in recent years indicating structural, physiologic, and biochemical alterations in the brain of patients with chronic migraine (CM). Altered pharmacologic responses to opioids and other analgesics have also been reported. Structural or morphologic changes include reduced cortical gray matter of the pain processing areas of the brain and iron accumulation in the periaqueductal gray matter (PAG), red nucleus, and basal ganglia structures. These changes correlate with the duration of migraine disorder and, therefore, are more marked in CM compared to episodic migraine (EM). A dysmodulation of trigeminovascular nociception resulting from changes in PAG may be an important factor in the pathophysiology of CM. Even though the pathophysiology and significance of subcortical white matter lesions and infarct like cerebellar lesions are not fully understood, their occurrence in patients with frequent migraine is further evidence of structural alterations in the brain in CM. Physiologic changes in CM are altered brain metabolism, excitability, and central sensitization of nociceptive pathways. CM is associated with alterations in the brain metabolism confirmed by positron emission tomography (PET) studies. Of special interest is the reversible hypometabolism in the insula, thalamus, anterior cingulate, and parietal lobe and sustained hypometabolism in the orbitofrontal cortex in medication overuse headache. Cortical excitability is increased in CM compared to EM, as confirmed by magnetic suppression of visual accuracy. Cutaneous allodynia, which is more often seen in CM, is a marker of central sensitization. Central sensitization generates free radicals that damage PAG. Cutaneous allodynia is correlated with frequency of migraine attacks and duration of migraine illness. Chronically sensitized central nociceptive neurons may account for CM and its resistance to treatment. Alterations in central glutamate neurotransmission have been reported in the anterior cingulate and insula using magnetic resonance spectroscopy. Medications affecting central glutamatergic neurotransmission may have a potential therapeutic role in CM. Frequent use of opioids and analgesics in EM leads to CM. Opioid-induced hyperalgesia, recognized in recent years, can lead to intractability of migraine. Better understanding of the pathophysiology of CM should lead to better ways to treat these patients. The buy topamax various effective preventive agents used in migraine prophylaxis, such as topiramate, valproate, β-blockers, and tricyclic antidepressants, appear to have a common effect of suppressing cortical excitability (cortical spreading depression). Suppression of cortical spreading depression by these agents is correlated with the dosages and the duration of treatment. The beneficial effect of botulinum toxin in CM may be due to its antinociceptive effect. Changes in the glutamate and calcitonin gene-related peptide at the peripheral nerve endings reduce peripheral sensitization, which eventually leads to reduced central sensitization.

Combinations of LTG with TPM or valproate (VPA), at fixed ratios of 1:1, were significantly supraadditive (synergistic) in the MES test and, simultaneously, subadditive (antagonistic) in the chimney test, showing the best profile for AED combinations. In contrast, combinations between LTG and carbamazepine (CBZ), in terms of antiseizure protection against MES, were subadditive (antagonistic) and additive in the chimney test, resulting in unfavorable AED combinations. Moreover, the combination of LTG with phenobarbital (PB), at a fixed ratio of 1:1, despite synergy in buy topamax the MES test, also was synergistic in the chimney test, resulting in a modest BI for AED combination. LTG combined with phenytoin was additive in both the MES and chimney tests in mice. The remaining combinations, at fixed ratios not mentioned earlier, also showed an average BI for AED combinations. Furthermore, LTG combined with all studied AEDs did not affect long-term memory in mice. None of the AEDs influenced the free plasma level of LTG, whereas LTG slightly reduced the free plasma concentration of PB.

The data obtained indicate that HCTZ (100 mg ip) enhanced the anticonvulsant action of CBZ, decreasing its ED(50) value from 11.9 to 7.7 mg/kg (p < 0.05), and had no impact on the antielectroshock activity of the other AEDs. The observed interaction buy topamax between HCTZ and CBZ was not pharmacokinetic in nature as HCTZ did not alter free plasma (non-protein-bound) and total brain concentrations of CBZ. The combined treatment with HCTZ and the AEDs was free from side-effects on motor performance and long-term memory in mice.

Bipolar disorder is a common recurrent illness with high levels of chronicity. Treatment resistance persists despite the use of established medications, such as lithium and valproate. New medications are required for the treatment of refractory cases. Retrospective and open-label trials have suggested that the buy topamax anticonvulsant topiramate may be efficacious in bipolar disorder. There is a need to clarify the evidence available in the form of randomised controlled trials for its use in bipolar disorder.

  Abrupt withdrawal or tapering down of overused medication is recommended, the type of withdrawal therapy is probably not relevant for the outcome of the patient. However, inpatient withdrawal therapy is buy topamax recommended for patients overusing opioids, benzodiazepine, or barbiturates. It is further recommended to start individualized prophylactic drug treatment at the first day of withdrawal therapy or even before. The only drug with moderate evidence for the prophylactic treatment in patients with chronic migraine and medication overuse is topiramate up to 200mg. Corticosteroids (at least 60mg prednisone or prednisolone) and amitriptyline (up to 50mg) are possibly effective in the treatment of withdrawal symptoms. Patients after withdrawal therapy should be followed up regularly to prevent relapse of medication overuse.

Evidence for efficacy of clozapine augmentation is currently scarce. Efficacy of lamotrigine and Zantac Generic Target topiramate were both dependent on single studies with deviating findings. The effect of citalopram, sulpiride, and CX516 were based on single studies. Thus, despite their popularity, pharmacological augmentations of clozapine are not (yet) demonstrated to be superior to placebo.

The Fourth Eilat Conference on New Antiepileptic Drugs (AEDs) was held at the Royal Beach Hotel, Eilat, Israel, from 6th to 10th September 1998. Epileptologists and scientists from 20 countries attended the conference, which was held to discuss a number of issues in drug development Ventolin Generic Name , including outcome assessment in epilepsy (long-term efficacy, quality of life, safety), cost-effectiveness, an update on drugs in development, a progress report on recently marketed AEDs, and controversies in strategies for drug development. This review focuses on drugs in development and recently marketed AEDs. Drugs in development include ADCI, AWD 131-138, DP16, ganaxolone (CCD 1042), levetiracetam (ucb L059), losigamone, pregabalin (isobutyl GABA [CI-1008]), remacemide hydrochloride, retigabine (D-23129), rufinamide (CGP 33101), soretolide (D2916), TV1901, and 534U87.

Obesity is a major problem of modern societies that sometimes, but not necessarily, is associated with binge-eating disorder (BED), a relatively new disorder characterized Coreg Cr Cost by binge eating without purging. The purpose of this article is to review the rationale for the potential use of pharmacological treatments in BED, and the potential use of the recently proposed compounds. Therefore, a careful medline of published articles from 1980 to December 2010 was carried out using the following keywords: BED and treatment, topiramate, zonisamide, sibutramine, venlafaxine, duloxetine, ghrelin, opiate blockers. Single case reports, observational studies, opinion articles, and studies concerning adults with syndromes resulting in BED (i.e., night eating syndrome) were also reviewed. All examined papers would indicate that the pharmacological treatment of BED is still heterogenous and poorly established, mainly for the lack of controlled studies in large samples of patients. In any case, the data on serotonin and norepinephrine reuptake inhibitors and on novel anticonvulsants seem quite promising in terms of efficacy and tolerability. In addition, the preliminary findings on the possibility of modulating appetite through the interference with the ghrelin system suggest new and intriguing ways of intervention in BED.

The glutamate hyperfunction hypothesis of schizophrenia has been proposed largely on the basis of studies in post-mortem brain and the lack of efficacy of glutamate agonists as antipsychotic drugs. Recent reports have also suggested that the addition of lamotrigine, a glutamate excess release inhibitor, can cause a dramatic improvement in clozapine treatment-resistant patients, as well as attenuate the neuropsychiatric effects of ketamine in healthy volunteers. To explore the glutamate hyperfunction hypothesis, patients with schizophrenia who were treatment-resistant to current antipsychotic medications were augmented with either lamotrigine (n = 17) or topiramate (a glutamate kainate/alpha-amino-3-hydroxy-5-methyl-4-isoxazolaproprionate antagonist that potentiates GABA function) (n = 9) for 24 weeks. Patients receiving lamotrigine augmentation of clozapine Prednisone Online had a significant decrease in Brief Psychiatric Rating Scale score after 2 weeks of treatment. There was no significant improvement when lamotrigine was added to risperidone, haloperidol, olanzapine or fluphenthixol. There was also no significant improvement observed with topiramate augmentation of clozapine, olanzapine, haloperidol and fluphenthixol. These preliminary data support previous evidence that lamotrigine is an effective augmentation agent for clozapine. Although limited by sample size, the findings also suggest glutamate hyperfunction in schizophrenia may have a presynaptic basis and that atypicals with low dopamine receptor occupancy may have antagonistic actions on glutamate function which confer additional antipsychotic activity.
