Description

Trileptal is used for treating certain types of seizures in patients with epilepsy. It may be used alone or in combination with other medicines. It may also be used for other conditions.

Trileptal is an anticonvulsant. It works by slowing abnormal nerve impulses in the brain.

Trileptal is also known as Oxcarbazepine, Trexapin.

Dosage

Trileptal may be taken with or without food.

It is important to take all doses on time to keep the level of medicine in your blood constant. Take doses at evenly spaced intervals. Do not skip doses.

Taking Trileptal at the same times each day will help you to remember to take it.

Continue to take Trileptal even if you feel well.

Do not miss any doses. Trileptal works best when there is a constant level of Trileptal in your body.

If you want to achieve most effective results do not stop taking Trileptal suddenly. If Trileptal is stopped, this should be done gradually. The risk of seizures may be increased if Trileptal is suddenly stopped.

Overdose

If you overdose Trileptal and you don't feel good you should visit your doctor or health care provider immediately.

Storage

Store at room temperature between 15 and 30 degrees C (59 and 86 degrees F) away from moisture, light and heat. Keep container tightly closed. Store in the original container. Use within 7 weeks of first opening the bottle. Throw away any unused medicine after the expiration date. Keep out of reach of children.

Side effect occurrence does not only depend on medication you are taking, but also on your overall health and other factors.

Contraindications

Do not take Trileptal if you are allergic to its components.

Do not take Trileptal if you are pregnant, planning to become pregnant, or are breast-feeding.

If you have a history of seizures, you may suddenly lose consciousness while you are taking Trileptal. Avoid activities where loss of consciousness could be dangerous to you or others (driving, swimming, climbing, and operating heavy machinery).

Hormonal birth control pills may not work as well while you are using Trileptal. To prevent pregnancy, use an extra form of birth control (condoms).

Trileptal may cause you to become sunburned more easily. Avoid the sun, sunlamps, or tanning booths until you know how you react to Trileptal. Use a sunscreen or wear protective clothing if you must be outside for more than a short time.

Trileptal must be gradually decreased when discontinued. Talk to your health care provider about the proper way to stop Trileptal.

Notify your health care provider if seizure control worsens.

Lab tests, including sodium blood levels, may be performed while you use Trileptal. These tests may be used to monitor your condition or check for side effects. Be sure to keep all doctor and lab appointments.

Trileptal should not be used in children younger than 2 years old. Safety and effectiveness in these children have not been confirmed.

Avoid alcohol.

It can be dangerous to stop Trileptal taking suddenly.

Oxcarbazepine appears to benefit adults with clinically significant impulsive aggression.

trileptal depression medication

Transformation of the pharmaceutical oxcarbazepine (OXC), a keto analogue of carbamazepine (CBZ) was investigated under different water disinfection processes (ozonation, chlorination and UV irradiation) to compare its persistence, toxicity and degradation pathways with those of CBZ. Analysis by LC-ion trap-MS(n) allowed for the identification of up to thirteen transformation products (TPs). The major abundant and persistent TPs (10,11-dihydro-10,11-trans-dihydroxy-carbamazepine (DiOH-CBZ), acridine (ACIN) and 1-(2-benzaldehyde)-(1H, 3H)-quinazoline-2,4-dione (BQD)) were identical to those previously reported during water treatment of CBZ. Only one new compound arising from an intramolecular cyclisation reaction was identified during UV irradiation. OXC reacted quickly with hydroxyl radical and relatively rapidly with free chlorine while slow reaction rates were recorded in presence of ozone and upon UV irradiation. An increase of the acute toxicity of UV irradiated solutions, monitored by a Daphnia magna bioassay, was recorded, probably due to the accumulation of ACIN. The formation of ACIN is of concern due to the carcinogenic properties of this chemical. ACIN was also generated during the direct UV photo transformation of DiOH-CBZ and 10-hydroxy-10,11-dihydro-carbamazepine (OH-CBZ), two metabolites of OXC and CBZ widely detected in water resources. Analysis of tap water samples revealed the occurrence at ng/L levels of the major TPs detected under laboratory scale experiments, except ACIN.

Oxcarbazepine appears to be a promising alternative monotherapeutic approach for patients affected by PHN.

trileptal vs generic

Oxcarbazepine (OX), a new antiepileptic, may lead to unwanted side-effects or even life-threatening intoxications after overdose. Therefore, a validated liquid chromatographic/mass spectrometric (LC/MS) assay was developed for the quantification of OX and its pharmacologically active dihydro metabolite (dihydrooxcarbazepine, DOX, often named 10-hydroxycarbazepine). OX and DOX were extracted from plasma by the authors' standard liquid/liquid extraction and were separated on a Merck LiChroCART column with Superspher 60 RP Select B as the stationary phase. Gradient elution was performed using aqueous ammonium formate and acetonitrile. The compounds were quantified in the selected-ion monitoring mode using atmospheric pressure chemical ionization electrospray LC/MS. The assay was fully validated. It was found to be selective. The calibration curves were linear from 0.1 to 50 mg l(-1) for OX and DOX. Limits of quantification were 0.1 mg l(-1) for OX and DOX. The absolute recoveries were between 60 and 86%. The accuracy and precision data were within the required limits. The analytes in frozen plasma samples were stable for at least 1 month. The method was successfully applied to several authentic plasma samples from patients treated or intoxicated with OX. The measured therapeutic plasma levels ranged from 1 to 2 mg l(-1) for OX and from 10 to 40 mg l(-1) for DOX. The validated LC/MS assay proved to be appropriate for quantification of OX and DOX in plasma for clinical toxicology and therapeutic drug monitoring purposes. The assay is part of a general analysis procedure for the isolation, separation and quantification of various drugs and for their full-scan screening and identification.

Oxcarbazepine (OXC) is a promising alternative for patients who cannot tolerate carbamazepine. Recently, however, it has been reported that OXC-induced cutaneous adverse drug reactions (cADRs) are prevalent and may lead to drug discontinuation. Additionally, these reactions are thought to be associated with HLA-B*1502. This study aims to investigate the incidence, features and risk factors of OXC-cADRs, and to explore their relation to HLA-B alleles in Southern Han Chinese.

Lyophilised serum samples containing clinically relevant concentrations of felbamate (FBM), gabapentin (GBP), lamotrigine (LTG), the monohydroxy derivative of oxcarbazepine (OCBZ; MHD), tiagabine (TGB), topiramate (TPM), and vigabatrin (VGB) were distributed monthly among 70 laboratories participating in the international Heathcontrol External Quality Assessment Scheme (EQAS). Assay results returned over a 15-month period were evaluated for precision and accuracy.

This study has demonstrated the long-term efficacy and safety of desensitization to oxcarbazepine in patients exhibiting cutaneous adverse drug reactions. This favorable outcome should encourage the implementation of desensitization in patients presenting with hypersensitivity to oxcarbazepine as an alternative strategy in clinical practice.

Trigeminal neuralgia is sudden, usually unilateral, severe, stabbing, brief recurrent pain in the distribution area of one or more of the branches of trigeminal nerve. Various pharmacological agents including carbamazepine, oxcarbazepine, phenytoin, lamotrigine, baclofen and clonazepam have been tried with variable success rate. Here a case of idiopathic trigeminal neuralgia is presented. The patient presented in the emergency room with severe pain in the distribution area of maxillary branch of trigeminal nerve, resistant to conventional pharmacotherapy, managed successfully with gabapentin without untoward side-effects.

trileptal user reviews

The story began on 11th May 1857 when Charles Locock commented in the Lancet on his use of potassium bromide in 15 cases of "hysterical" epilepsy in young women. The next development was the serendipitous discovery of the anticonvulsant properties of phenobarbital by Alfred Hauptmann in 1912. This predated by more than 20 years the screening of potential therapeutic agents against "electrical seizures" in cats by Houston Merritt and Tracy Putnam. The result was the launching of phenytoin in 1938. Next came primidone, ethosuximide, carbamazepine and valproic acid, all of which can be regarded as first generation antiepileptic drugs (AEDs). Shortly after their synthesis, the benzodiazepines were rapidly recognised as having anticonvulsant activity. The modern era focused on the systematic screening of many thousands of compounds against rodent seizure models under the Anticonvulsant Drug Development Program in the US. This resulted in the global licensing, in chronological order, of vigabatrin, zonisamide, oxcarbazepine, lamotrigine, felbamate, gabapentin, topiramate, tiagabine, levetiracetam, pregabalin and lacosamide. Rufinamide is available in the US and Europe for Lennox-Gastaut syndrome and stiripentol has been made available for Dravet syndrome under the European orphan drug scheme. Eslicarbazepine can be prescribed in Europe for partial seizures, but not in the US. Has all this activity improved the lives of people with epilepsy? The short answer is-probably yes, but not by very much! This paper will conclude with a précis of the views of a selected group of paediatric and adult epileptologists on the advances in pharmacological management achieved over the last 20 years.

Nationwide analyses of drug use can provide a prevalence estimate of the underlying disease and can help in understanding the characteristics of treatment. This study aimed for such analyses regarding the utilization of antiepileptic drugs (AED) for epilepsy in Germany. In 2009, all 4,115,705 AED prescriptions of all German patients with statutory health insurance (70,011,508 persons) were retrospectively analyzed. The IMS(®) LRx database served as data source, which accesses nationwide pharmacy data centers processing all German prescription data. To establish the age and sex-specific percentage of patients taking AED because of epilepsy, we used a second database, Disease Analyzer(®), which covered a representative sample of the German population (7.2 million patients) and contained ICD10 codes alongside with prescription data. The period prevalence of patients taking AED because of epilepsy was 9.1/1,000 (children/adolescents: 5.2/1,000; elderly: 12.5/1,000). Of the patients, 83.1 % took at least one of four AED: valproate (29.8 %), carbamazepine (26.4 %), lamotrigine (21.4 %), and levetiracetam (16.9 %). Oxcarbazepine and sultiame were popular with pediatricians. Elderly patients frequently received phenytoin and primidone. More than half of the patients were treated by family physicians; 68 % took AED in monotherapy and 7.9 % received >2 AED (children/adolescents: 12.5 %). The costs for AED prescribed for epilepsy amounted to €285.1 Mio (median AED costs/patient: €158/a). The German 2009 prevalence of epileptic patients taking AED was 9.1/1,000. Family physicians cared for the majority of patients. Prevalence and prescribing patterns changed with age. Costs of AED against epilepsy added up to 1 % of total medication costs in Germany.

In patients with trigeminal neuralgia (TN), routine head imaging identifies structural causes in up to 15% of patients and may be considered useful (Level C). Trigeminal sensory deficits, bilateral involvement of the trigeminal nerve, and abnormal trigeminal reflexes are associated with an increased risk of symptomatic TN (STN) and should be considered useful in distinguishing STN from classic trigeminal neuralgia (Level B). There is insufficient evidence to support or refute the usefulness of MRI to identify neurovascular compression of the trigeminal nerve (Level U). Carbamazepine (Level A) or oxcarbazepine (Level B) should be offered for pain control while baclofen and lamotrigine (Level C) may be considered useful. For patients with TN refractory to medical therapy, Gasserian ganglion percutaneous techniques, gamma knife, and microvascular decompression may be considered (Level C). The role of surgery vs pharmacotherapy in the management of TN in patients with MS remains uncertain.

A prospective non-randomized non-controlled multicenter trial has been conducted. The trial included 254 children, aged from 11 months to 18 years (mean age 9.3 +/- 4.5 years), with predominantly focal forms of epilepsy treated with trileptal (oxcarbazepine). The observation period was 31 weeks. Efficacy and safety of therapy was assessed in 3 visits: screening and assignment to therapy (visit 1), the end of titration and achievement of maintenance dose (visit 2), assessment of maintenance therapy (visit 3). The percentage of patients with a positive response to the trileptal therapy (the decrease of seizure frequency by 50% and more) was 91.1%. The complete reduction of seizures was achieved in 59.4% of patients. Most of patients (95.3%) continued to receive trileptal until the end of the trial. The significant decrease (p < 0.001) of seizure frequency from visit 1 to visit 3, the reduction of epileptiform activity (p < 0.05) on the awake EEG in visit 3 were found. The mean effective dose of trileptal was 902.4 +/- 442.7 mg/day, i.e. was less than 30 mg/kg/day, daily doses did not exceed 600 mg. Adverse effects were observed in 11.2% of patients but in 40% of cases they seemed not be related to the drug. The adverse effects were from mild to moderate extent. In conclusion, trileptal as the monotherapy is effective and well-tolerated in the treatment of focal epilepsies in the age groups studied.

The choice of antiepileptic drug for an individual should be based upon the highest quality evidence regarding potential benefits and harms of the available treatments. Systematic reviews and meta-analysis of randomised controlled trials should be a major source of evidence supporting this decision making process. We summarise all available individual patient data evidence from randomised controlled trials that compared at least two out of eight antiepileptic drugs given as monotherapy.

Exposure in the womb to certain AEDs carried an increased risk of malformation in the foetus and may be associated with specific patterns of malformation. Based on current evidence, LEV and LTG exposure carried the lowest risk of overall malformation; however, data pertaining to specific malformations are lacking. Physicians should discuss both the risks and treatment efficacy with the patient prior to commencing treatment.

Accumulating evidence indicates that amiloride (a potassium-sparing diuretic) exerts the anticonvulsant action in various in vivo and in vitro experiments. Therefore, the objective of this study was to assess the influence of amiloride on the protective action of numerous conventional and second-generation antiepileptic drugs [AEDs: carbamazepine (CBZ), lamotrigine (LTG), oxcarbazepine (OXC), phenobarbital (PB), topiramate (TPM), and valproate (VPA)] against maximal electroshock (MES)-induced seizures in mice. Results indicate that amiloride [up to 100 mg/kg, intraperitoneally (i.p.), at 30, 60, and 120 min before the test] neither altered the threshold for buy trileptal electroconvulsions, nor protected the animals against MES-induced seizures in mice. Moreover, amiloride (75 and 100 mg/kg, i.p., 120 min prior to the test) significantly enhanced the anticonvulsant effects of all studied AEDs, except for LTG, by reducing their ED(50) values in the MES test. In contrast, amiloride at 50 mg/kg (i.p.) had no significant effect on the antielectroshock action of the tested AEDs in mice. Estimation of total brain AED concentrations revealed that amiloride (75 mg/kg) significantly increased total brain concentrations of CBZ, OXC, and PB, but not those of LTG, TPM, and VPA in mice. In conclusion, one can ascertain that the potentiation of the antiseizure action of TPM and VPA by amiloride in the MES test and lack of any pharmacokinetic interactions between drugs, make the combinations of amiloride with TPM and VPA of pivotal importance for epileptic patients.

Traditional antiepileptic drugs (AEDs) are associated with drug interactions and side effects that limit their safety and tolerability. Side effects of traditional buy trileptal AEDs are especially problematic for children and adolescents, women of childbearing age, and the elderly. Many patients with epilepsy may benefit from switching from a traditional AED to a newer agent because the newer agents are generally better tolerated and are less likely to cause drug interactions. Clinical studies have demonstrated improved therapeutic efficiency with better tolerability in patients switching from a traditional AED to lamotrigine, oxcarbazepine, or topiramate monotherapy or combination therapy.

Sixty-two placebo-controlled (12,902 patients) and eight head-to- buy trileptal head RCTs (1,370 patients) were included. Pooled ORs for responder and withdrawal rates (vs. placebo) were 3.00 [95% confidence interval (CI) 2.63-3.41] and 1.48 (1.30-1.68), respectively. Indirect comparisons of responder rate based on relative measurements of treatment effect (ORs) favored topiramate (1.52; 1.06-2.20) in comparison to all other AEDs, whereas gabapentin (0.67; 0.46-0.97) and lacosamide (0.66; 0.48-0.92) were less efficacious, without significant heterogeneity. When analyses were based on absolute estimates (NNTs), topiramate and levetiracetam were more efficacious, whereas gabapentin and tiagabine were less efficacious. Withdrawal rate was higher with oxcarbazepine (OR 1.60; 1.12-2.29) and topiramate (OR 1.68; 1.07-2.63), and lower with gabapentin (OR 0.65; 0.42-1.00) and levetiracetam (OR 0.62; 0.43-0.89).

The idiopathic generalized epilepsies (IGE) are a group of epilepsies that are genetically determined, have no structural or anatomic cause, and usually begin early in life. Neurologic examination, intelligence, and imaging studies are normal, and EEG shows only epileptiform abnormalities (i.e., no abnormal slow activity or evidence for diffuse encephalopathy). In some IGE, the genetic substrate has been identified, whereas in most, it remains unknown. Depending on the age at onset and predominant seizure type, individual subtypes of IGE (syndromes) are defined. However, overall, there are more similarities than there are differences among the various subtypes, and the IGE are best viewed as a spectrum or continuum of conditions. In general, IGE respond to treatment, with 80-90% becoming fully controlled. However, not all antiepileptic drugs (AED) are equally effective in IGE. Some AED are ill advised because they either do not work or exacerbate seizure types other than generalized tonic-clonic (GTC) seizures, that is, absence and myoclonic seizures. These include carbamazepine, oxcarbazepine, phenytoin, gabapentin, and tiagabine. Their use is the main cause of "pseudo-intractability," and at least in the United States where PHT and CBZ are the most commonly used AEDs, patients with IGE are often on inadequate medications. For patients with clear IGE, the drug of choice is generally valproic acid because it effectively controls absence myoclonic seizures and GTC seizures. Second-line drugs (when first-line drugs fail or are not tolerated) may include benzodiazepines, but the use buy trileptal of second-line drugs is evolving rapidly. Some of the newer AEDs are considered broad spectrum, meaning that they work in IGE and focal epilepsies, although the evidence is largely preliminary at this point. These newer AEDs include lamotrigine, topiramate, levetiracetam, and zonisamide.

Carbamazepine (CBZ) has been extensively used in the treatment of epilepsy, as well as in the treatment of neuropathic pain and affective disorders. However, the mechanisms of action of this drug are not completely elucidated and are still a matter of debate. Since CBZ is not very effective in some epileptic patients and may cause several adverse effects, several antiepileptic drugs have been developed by structural variation of CBZ, such as oxcarbazepine (OXC), which is used in the treatment of epilepsy since 1990. (S)-(-)-10-acetoxy-10,11-dihydro-5H-dibenz [b, buy trileptal f]azepine-5-carboxamide (BIA 2-093) and 10,11-dihydro-10-hydroxyimino-5H-dibenz[b,f] azepine-5-carboxamide (BIA 2-024), which were recently developed by BIAL, are new putative antiepileptic drugs, with some improved properties. In this review, we will focus on the mechanisms of action of CBZ and its derivatives, OXC, BIA 2-093 and BIA 2-024. The available data indicate that the anticonvulsant efficacy of these AEDs is mainly due to the inhibition of sodium channel activity.

The twelve LH patients (mean age 43.9 ± 12.2) complained of a recurrent, moderate to severe, distending (n = 9), pressure-like (n = 3) or pulsating (n = 3) pain within a strictly unilateral line-shaped area. The painful line is distributed from occipital or occipitocervical region to the ipsilateral eye (n = 5), forehead (n = 6) or parietal region (n = 1). The pain line has a trajecory similar to that of EF but no characteristics of moving. The headache duration would be ranged from five minutes to three days, but usually from half day to one day in most cases (n = 8). Six patients had the accompaniment of nausea with or without vomiting, and two patients had the accompaniment of ipsilateral dizziness. The attacks could be either spontaneous (n = 10) or triggered by noise, depression and resting after physical activity (n = 1), or by stress and staying up late (n = 1). The frequency of attacks was variable. The patients had well response to flunarizine, sodium valproate and amitriptyline but not to carbamazepine or oxcarbazepine. LH is different from EF, trigeminal autonomic cephalalgias (TACs) and cranial neuralgia, but it had couple of features similar to Zocor Maximum Dosage that of migraine.

In classwise analyses, SGAs supplanted lithium, valproate, and carbamazepine/oxcarbazepine as the most commonly initiated antimanics by 2007. Psychosis, but not other indices of severity, predicted SGA initiation. Demographic analyses did not identify substantial disparities in initiation of SGAs. Drug-specific analyses Ilosone Suspension Dosage revealed some consideration of medical comorbidities in choosing among specific antimanic agents, although effect sizes were small. Most patients initiating an antimanic had received an antidepressant in the previous year.

Subjective cognitive side effects (CSEs) are common in patients taking antiepileptic drugs (AEDs). The objective of this study was to predict which patients are at risk for CSEs, and compare the CSE profiles of all commonly used AEDs. In this nonrandomized retrospective study, medical records of 1694 adult outpatients with epilepsy seen at our center over a 5-year period who had taken one or more AEDs were examined. Non-AED predictors of CSEs were investigated, and rates of AED-related CSEs were compared in 1189 patients (546 on monotherapy) newly started on an AED at our center. The average rate of AED-related intolerable CSEs (leading to dosage change or discontinuation) was 12.8%. On multivariate analysis, no significant non-AED predictors of CSEs were found. Significantly more intolerable CSEs were attributed to topiramate (21.5% of 130 patients) than to most other AEDs, including carbamazepine (9.9%), gabapentin (7.3%), levetiracetam (10.4%), lamotrigine (8.9%), oxcarbazepine (11.6%), and valproate (8.3%). CSE rates with zonisamide (14.9%) were significantly higher than those for gabapentin and lamotrigine. After exclusion of CSEs during the first 8 weeks of Motrin Gel therapy, rates of CSEs were lower, but relative differences remained unchanged. In monotherapy, significantly more intolerable CSEs occurred with topiramate (11.1% of 18 patients) than with carbamazepine or valproate, and both phenytoin and zonisamide were associated with more CSEs than valproate. From this study, it can be concluded that intolerable patient-reported CSEs are most common with topiramate, followed by zonisamide, phenytoin, and oxcarbazepine. They are least likely to be reported with gabapentin, valproate, lamotrigine, carbamazepine, and levetiracetam.

The treatment of epilepsy in pregnancy is particularly challenging in that the fetal and maternal risks associated with maternal seizures need to be balanced against the potential teratogenic effects of antiepileptic drugs (AEDs). Pregnancy is known to affect the pharmacokinetics of older-generation AEDs. Understanding such alterations is important in the effort to optimise drug therapy since they may affect seizure control as well as fetal drug exposure. Therapeutic drug monitoring has therefore been recommended to control for changes in the disposition of the older-generation AEDs during pregnancy. Much less is known about gestation-induced alterations in the pharmacokinetics of the newer AEDs that have been introduced in the last 15 years. Lamotrigine is by far the most extensively studied of the newer AEDs. Pronounced alterations have been reported in the apparent clearance of lamotrigine, with an increase of >300% from baseline in late pregnancy in some patients on monotherapy, most likely due to enhanced metabolism. The available data suggest that the corresponding decline in plasma concentrations can be associated with loss of seizure control. More limited data indicate that a similar decline in plasma concentrations Amaryl Overdose of the active monohydroxy derivative of oxcarbazepine may occur in late pregnancy. Preliminary experience also suggests that a significant fall in plasma concentrations of levetiracetam may occur during pregnancy. No systematic information is available on the pharmacokinetics during pregnancy of other newer AEDs (e.g. gabapentin, pregabalin, tiagabine, topiramate or zonisamide). Given the importance of maintaining optimal treatment of epilepsy during pregnancy, therapeutic drug monitoring appears to be justified for lamotrigine and oxcarbazepine in particular. Systematic studies of the effects of pregnancy on the pharmacokinetics of the other newer-generation AEDs are urgently needed.

A high-performance liquid chromatography (HPLC) assay using UV detection is described for the simultaneous measurement of the newer generation anti-epileptic medications lamotrigine, oxcarbazepine (parent drug and active metabolite 10- hydroxycarbazepine), and zonisamide. Detection of all four compounds can be done at 230 nm; however, there is a potential interference with zonisamide in patients on clonazepam therapy. Therefore, the method uses dual wavelength detection: 230 nm for oxcarbazepine and 10-hydroxycarbazepine and 270 nm for lamotrigine and zonisamide. In addition, a simple gas chromatography method using a nitrogen-phosphorus detector is described for the measurement of levetiracetam, another of the recently approved anti-epileptic medications. For both methods, limits of quantitation, linearities, accuracies, and imprecisions cover the therapeutic range for drug monitoring of patients. A wide variety of clinical drugs, including other anti-epileptic drugs, do not interfere with these assays. These procedures would be of special interest to clinical laboratories, particularly due to the limited availability of immunoassays for newer generation anti-epileptic medications and that therapeutic uses of these drugs are expanding beyond epilepsy to other neurologic and psychiatric disorders.

Since 1993, the Anticonvulsant Drug Development Program has contributed to the successful development of nine clinically effective drugs for the symptomatic treatment of epilepsy. These include felbamate (1993), gabapentin (1994), lamotrigine (1994), fosphenytoin (1996), topiramate (1996), tiagabine (1997), levetiracetam (1999), zonisamide (2000), and oxcarbazepine (2000). Despite the apparent success of the current discovery process, a significant need persists for more efficacious and less toxic antiepileptic drugs (AEDs). This is particularly true for patients whose seizures remain refractory to the currently available AEDs. This chapter will review the current process for AED discovery employed by the Anticonvulsant Drug Development Program at the University of Utah and other laboratories working toward the common goal of discovering better therapeutic options for patients living with epilepsy. It will discuss some of the inherent advantages and limitations of the primary animal models employed, while offering insight into potential future directions as we seek to better understand the pathophysiology underlying acquired epilepsy, therapy resistance, and epileptogenesis.

Oxcarbazepine is the only AED with Class I evidence for efficacy/effectiveness as initial monotherapy for partial-onset seizures in children. Carbamazepine, clobazam, lamotrigine, phenobarbital, phenytoin, topiramate, valproate, vigabatrin and zonisamide have, at best, Class III efficacy/effectiveness evidence for monotherapy of partial-onset seizures in children. For adjunctive therapy, gabapentin, lamotrigine, levetiracetam, oxcarbazepine and topiramate have Class I efficacy/effectiveness evidence for treatment of pediatric partial-onset seizures.

The most common side effects following administration of antiepileptic drugs involve alterations in sleep architecture and varying degrees of daytime sleepiness. Oxcarbazepine is a drug that is approved as monotherapy for the treatment of partial seizures and generalized tonic-clonic seizures. However, there is no information about its effects on sleep pattern organization; therefore, the objective of this work was to analyze such effects. Animals (Wistar rats) exhibited three different behavioral and electrophysiological states of vigilance: wakefulness, slow wave sleep (SWS), and rapid eye movement (REM) sleep. Oral treatment with oxcarbazepine (100 mg/kg) produced an increment in total sleep time throughout the recording period. This increment involved both SWS and REM sleep. Mean duration of the REM sleep phase was not affected. In contrast, the frequency of this sleep phase increased significantly across the 10-hour period. REM sleep latency shortened significantly. Results obtained in this work indicate that oxcarbazepine's acute effects point to hypnotic properties.
