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.


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.


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

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


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.

trileptal high dose

We updated a recently completed systematic review of 57 eligible studies with 24 additional published studies and 25 unpublished studies. For reducing neuropathy-related pain, the serotonin-norepinephrine reuptake inhibitors duloxetine and venlafaxine (moderate SOE), the anticonvulsants pregabalin and oxcarbazepine (low SOE), the drug classes tricyclic antidepressants (low SOE) and atypical opioids (low SOE), and botulinum toxin (low SOE) were more effective than placebo. We could not draw conclusions about quality of life due to incomplete reporting. All studies were short-term (less than 6 months), and all effective drugs had more than 9% dropouts from adverse effects.

A prospective hospital based cross-sectional study was conducted in Tertiary care hospital. Epileptic patients attending Department of Neurology and taking antiepileptic drugs for last six months or more and on regular follow up; approximately 60 patients on commonly used antiepileptic drugs (20 on phenytoin, 20 on oxcarbazepine, 20 on valproic Acid) and 20 patients on newer antiepileptic drug (levetiracetam) was included in the study. Age and sex matching 80 controls were taken.

A simple and accurate HPLC method for determination of oxcarbazepine (OXC) in a new tablet formulation is described. Chromatographic separation was achieved on a Diamonsil C18 column using a mobile phase consisting of acetonitrile, potassium phosphate monobasic buffer (pH 6.8) and water (36:8:56, v/v) at a flow rate of 1.0 ml/min. Absorbance was monitored at 255 nm where OXC has maximum absorption. The linear range of detection for OXC was from 9.96 to 99.6 microg/ml. The proposed method was validated for selectivity, precision, accuracy and limits of detection and quantitation, etc.

trileptal 100 mg

Oxcarbazepine is an antiepileptic drug that has been approved by the US FDA and is indicated for use as monotherapy or adjunctive therapy in the treatment of partial seizures in adults and children aged over 4 years. The aim of this report is to investigate the results of clinical trials in order to ascertain the efficacy and safety of oxcarbazepine for use in bipolar disorder and schizoaffective disorder. Oxcarbazepine is a keto-congener of carbamazepine with fewer side effects and drug interactions. Orally administrated oxcarbazepine is rapidly and completely absorbed and has a half-life of 9 h. Currently, there is a lack of controlled clinical trials studying the use of oxcarbazepine. In light of controlled and open-label prospective studies, it may be useful for manic symptoms in the treatment of bipolar and schizoaffective patients. Case reports, retrospective and prospective studies suggest that oxcarbazepine might have prophylactic efficacy and long-term benefit for these patients. In addition, owing to its lower propensity for drug interactions and side effects, it may be useful in the treatment of refractory patients with bipolar and schizoaffective disorder. However, most of the trials have relevant methodological shortcomings. The side-effect profile of oxcarbazepine is similar to carbamazepine, but the severity of these effects appears to be slightly less. The symptoms that are most frequently associated with the use of oxcarbazepine are asthenia, headache, dizziness, somnolence, nausea, diplopia and skin rash. Isolated cases of hyponatremic coma have been reported, thus electrolyte abnormalities should be closely monitored. Oxcarbazepine is now a generic drug, but the metabolite licarbazepine and other related compounds, such as eslicarbazepine, are currently being studied under controlled conditions and might become useful therapies for bipolar and schizoaffective disorder in the future.

trileptal overdose death

Seizure control may be associated with the extent of changes in the neuronal irritative zones of BECTS patients. We suggest that changes of CSD extent may be used as an imaging modality to evaluate clinical improvement in BECTS patients.

trileptal 1300 mg

A 23-year-old man using Na-Valproic acid (VPA) was admitted to our clinic due to convulsion. The neurological examination revealed right hemiparesis. From the exitus notes, we learned that his two siblings had died from status epilepticus. Magnetic resonance imaging (MRI), MRI spectroscopy, and diffusion-weighted investigations (DWI) showed acute-subacute ischemic stroke in the left temporo-parieto-occipital region. The patient had an ischemic stroke. Heterozygote methylenetetrahydrofolate reductase (MTHFR) 677C/T polymorphism was determined on genetic examination. The homocysteine (Hcy) level was 18.2 mmol/l (5-15 mmol/l). So VPA treatment was stopped and oxcarbazepine treatment was started. MTHFR 677C/T polymorphism is associated with the risk of vascular diseases due to hyperhomocysteinemia. Heterozygote (MTHFR) 677C/T polymorphism has not been reported to be associated with epilepsy. In patients with heterozygote (MTHFR) 677C/T polymorphism and under long-term use of certain drugs the determination of Hcy plasma levels may be useful to prevent the development of atherothrombotic disease.

trileptal 600 mg

Modified Atkins diet used as add-on therapy to AEDs in four patients with drug resistant seizures caused a considerable decrease in AED serum concentrations. In individual patients, this could be of clinical relevance, and we recommend that AED serum concentrations should be closely monitored when offering this diet to adults with epilepsy.

We found 59 systematic reviews, RCTs, or observational studies that met our inclusion criteria. We performed a GRADE evaluation of the quality of evidence for interventions.

trileptal reviews seizures

A 64 year old female patient with previously known temporal lobe epilepsy (TLE) was admitted to the emergency department (ED) for further investigation of somnolence of unknown origin. Differential diagnosis remained puzzling after exclusion of an intracranial process and status epilepticus. Quantitative and qualitative fluctuations of consciousness are well known to take place in TLE as well as that these patients often are receiving several drugs for their illness. Drug history and measuring serum drug levels are helpful. Adverse Drug Events (ADE) are not rare in EDs: approximately 5% of ED patients are suffering an ADE and about 3% of patients admitted to hospitals are admitted because of an ADE. It is important to realize that three out of four ADEs are estimated to be preventable.

trileptal generic oxcarbazepine

The US Food and Drug Administration (FDA) released an alert in 2008 regarding an increased risk of suicidality in patients taking antiepileptic drugs (AEDs). The analysis that prompted this blanket warning has since been criticized for multiple flaws, and its relevance to patients with epilepsy is unclear.

Amitriptyline produced significant analgesia, but this was not apparent until after the second injection. Baclofen produced significant effects, but the response varied erratically. Mexiletine and NMED-126 (a mixed N- and T-type calcium channel blocker) produced consistent, significant analgesia when tested acutely, but the pain relief did not persist at 24 hours postinjection. Oxcarbazepine had no effect at any time. Tramadol produced consistent, near-complete analgesia when tested acutely, but the analgesia did not persist to 24 hours postinjection. Topiramate produced significant effects that were first evident after 6-8 days of dosing.

trileptal reviews anxiety

A survey on pediatric epilepsy and seizures (33 questions and 645 treatment options) was sent to 41 U.S. physicians specializing in pediatric epilepsy, 39 (95%) of whom completed it. In some questions, the experts were asked to recommend overall treatment approaches for specific syndromes (the order in which they would use certain strategies). Most of the questions asked the experts to rate options using a modified version of the RAND 9-point scale for medical appropriateness. Consensus was defined as a non-random distribution of scores by chi-square test, with ratings used to assign a categorical rank (first line/usually appropriate, second line/equivocal, and third line/usually not appropriate) to each option.

This study included thirty-eight painful diabetic neuropathy patients, which were screened with clinical assessment and electrophysiological studies. The efficacy and safety of oxcarbazepine were evaluated according to the changes in pain intensity and social interference subitems scores of Short-form Brief Pain Inventory besides electrophysiological studies at the end of six months of the treatment.

trileptal overdose symptoms

Despite the number of agents with demonstrated efficacy as maintenance treatments in bipolar disorder, optimal treatment regimens are still a combination of evidence-based therapy in combination with individualized creative treatment algorithms.

trileptal patient reviews

A clinical and pharmacokinetic study was carried out progressively substituting a new anticonvulsant oxcarbazepine for its congener carbamazepine in a group of patients with refractory epilepsy. Although oxcarbazepine showed possible though not statistically significant advantages of better seizure control and was probably less sedating, its use was associated with a dose-dependent reduction in plasma sodium levels in 12 of 15 patients. The mean plasma sodium level fell from 137.5 +/- 5.2 (s.d.) to 128.5 +/- 6.1 mE/l. Imposed restriction of fluid intake may have minimized the degree of hyponatraemia. This adverse effect may limit the role of the drug as an anticonvulsant or necessitate special precautions when it is used. However, the possibility of employing the drug in diabetes insipidus may be worth exploring.

Benign epilepsy with centro-temporal spikes (BECTS) is one of the most frequent epileptic syndromes in children. It is placed among the idiopathic localization-related epilepsies. However, the relationship between unilateral or bilateral localization of interictal stereotyped focal spikes on electroencephalogram (EEG) and the effectiveness of anti-epileptic drugs has not been studied yet.

The aim of this study was to characterize the anticonvulsant effects of 1-methyl-1,2,3,4-tetrahydroisoquinoline (MeTHIQ--an endogenous parkinsonism-preventing substance) in combination with four second-generation antiepileptic drugs (AEDs: lamotrigine [LTG], oxcarbazepine [OXC], pregabalin [PGB], and topiramate [TPM]) in the mouse maximal electroshock (MES)-induced seizure model by using the type I isobolographic analysis for parallel and non-parallel dose-response relationship curves (DRRCs). Potential adverse-effect profiles of interactions of MeTHIQ with LTG, OXC, PGB and TPM at the fixed-ratio of 1:1 from the MES test with respect to motor performance, long-term memory and skeletal muscular strength were measured along with total brain concentrations of MeTHIQ and TPM. In the mouse MES model, MeTHIQ administered singly had its DRRC parallel to those for OXC and TPM, and simultaneously, non-parallel to those for LTG and PGB. With type I isobolography for parallel DRRCs, the combination of MeTHIQ with TPM at three fixed-ratios of 1:3, 1:1 and 3:1 exerted supra-additive (synergistic) interaction, whereas the combination of MeTHIQ with OXC at the fixed-ratios of 1:3, 1:1 and 3:1 produced additive interaction. Similarly, the type I isobolography for non-parallel DRRCs revealed that the combination of MeTHIQ with LTG and PGB at the fixed-ratio of 1:1 produced additive interaction. For all combinations, neither motor coordination, long-term memory nor muscular strength were affected. Total brain concentrations of MeTHIQ and TPM revealed no significant changes in their concentrations when the drugs were combined at the fixed-ratios of 1:3, 1:1 and 3:1. In conclusion, the synergistic interaction of MeTHIQ with TPM at the fixed-ratios of 1:3, 1:1 and 3:1 against MES-induced seizures was pharmacodynamic in nature and thus, it is worthy of consideration in further clinical settings. The combinations of MeTHIQ with LTG, OXC and PGB were neutral in the mouse MES model.

We investigated whether in Sweden sociodemographic differences are associated with access to expert health care and antiepileptic drug (AED) prescriptions in children with epilepsy.

trileptal dosage

No studies were found in which this information was available for OXC, PGB, TGB or ZNS. The number of patients who achieved seizure freedom for 6 months was reported in four studies each for GBP and TPM, five studies for LTG, and eight studies for LEV. The best efficacy profile using this end point was found for LEV, followed by TPM, LTG, and GBP. Twenty-two studies reported the number of patients withdrawing due to adverse effects. LEV was the best-tolerated AED, a little ahead of LTG, and significantly better than GBP or TPM . TPM was by far the least well-tolerated drug. Information concerning patients continuing treatment after 1 year was reported in two GBP studies, two TPM studies, six LEV studies and five LTG studies. GBP had a very low retention rate (between 20% and 25% of patients continued the drug), while TPM and LTG had a retention rate of 40-60% and LEV had a retention rate of 60-75%.

A rapid and reliable analytical method suitable for the simultaneous determination of the antiepileptic drug, oxcarbazepine and its metabolites in human plasma and saliva by means of liquid chromatography with diode array detection (DAD) has been developed. Oxcarbazepine and its metabolites (10,11-dihydro-10-hydroxycarbamazepine, trans-10,11-dihydro-10,11-dihydroxycarbamazepine and 3-hydroxycarbamazepine) were baseline separated within 6.5 min on a reversed-phase C18 column with a phosphate buffer-acetonitrile-triethylamine mixture as the mobile phase. The DAD detector was set at 240 nm. A sample preparation method for biological samples using a microextraction by packed sorbent technique has been implemented, employing a C18 sorbent inserted into a microvolume syringe and using only a small volume (25 microL) of plasma or saliva. The extraction yield values were satisfactory for all analytes (>86.5%) as well as the precision data, which were always in the low percentage of relative standard deviation values (<4.6%). The method was successfully applied to both plasma and saliva samples drawn buy trileptal online from psychiatric and neurological patients undergoing treatment with oxcarbazepine (Tolep) tablets.

In all parameters assayed, OXC was more toxic than the other AEDs used. Because the new putative AEDs have previously been shown to have an efficacy in preventing seizures similar to that of CBZ and buy trileptal online OXC, and are less toxic to neuronal cells, they may be considered as alternatives to the current available therapies for the treatment of epilepsy.

Studies of the newer antiepileptic drugs suggest that they are exciting additions with improved efficacy and a perhaps decreased toxicity in certain types of refractory buy trileptal online childhood epilepsy. In some very rare syndromes only anecdotal reports exist and further study is needed. Issues of tolerability, long-term safety in very young children, and effects on learning, behavior and other cognitive functions must be balanced with the possibility of improved efficacy. Additional well-controlled studies taking into account both seizure types and epilepsy syndromes are very much needed in neonates, infants, school aged children and adolescents.

Alcohol withdrawal syndrome (AWS) is a serious complication of alcohol dependence and often requires intensive medical treatment. Antiepileptic drugs (AEDs) have been shown to be as efficacious in the treatment of AWS in several controlled trials as benzodiazepines and superior to placebo in relieving alcohol withdrawal symptoms. Oxcarbazepine (OXC), a newer anticonvulsive drug, has a favorable safety profile over carbamazepine (CBZ) and other older AEDs due to its excellent efficacy buy trileptal online and better side-effect profile.

Based on current data, gabapentin, oxcarbazepine, and topiramate are qualitatively similar in efficacy to carbamazepine/valproate in the management of agitation/aggression. However, studies-to-date in this field have had, in the main, numerous design flaws. In considering use of newer AEDs, the clinician needs to be aware of potential adverse events that are unique to these agents or infrequently seen with older AEDs (e.g., hyponatremia with oxcarbazepine, and acute myopia and angleclosure glaucoma, urinary tract stones, and cognition difficulties with topiramate). In addition, there is an buy trileptal online extensive literature documenting that newer AEDs can precipitate new-onset or worsen existing behavioral disorders, including agitation/aggression.

Juvenile myoclonic epilepsy (JME) is a frequent idiopathic generalised epilepsy syndrome with typical clinical and EEG features that can usually be controlled by valproate monotherapy. JME may be underdiagnosed or misdiagnosed; in the latter case, it may be mistaken for partial epilepsy. The incorrect diagnosis of JME is likely to result in inappropriate therapy, which may, in turn, worsen the seizures. While a number of studies have documented that carbamazepine aggravates idiopathic generalised epilepsy, few have shown a worsening of symptoms following the administration of oxcarbazepine (OXC). We report the case of a 44-year-old male affected by JME in which the inappropriate use of OXC precipitated a dramatic worsening of myoclonic seizures. In this case, video-EEG monitoring documented myoclonic status epilepticus with positive and negative myoclonus, correlating with repetitive, continuous, rhythmic, generalised polyspike-and-wave discharges. This is the first case of myoclonic status epilepticus induced by OXC in a patient with JME which is clearly documented by video-EEG. A buy trileptal online review of the literature with regards to OXC-induced worsening of seizures is also presented. [Published with video sequences].

Oxcarbazepine and topiramate might cause hyper-tHcy, most likely because of the capacity of these agents to induce the hepatic enzymes. Because literature data suggest that hyper-tHcy may contribute to the development of cerebrovascular diseases and brain atrophy, a supplement buy trileptal online of folate can be considered in these patients to normalize plasma tHcy.

The analysis included 21 patients (12 women, 9 men; mean age 36 years). After switching from OXC to ESL, there were significant improvements in mean buy trileptal online scores for AEP (P<.001), QOLIE-10 (P=.001), and alertness (P<.05). Adverse Events Profile total scores improved for 21/21 (100.0%) patients, QOLIE-10 total scores improved for 17/21 (81.0%) patients, and alertness scores improved for 16/21 (76.2%) patients.

Long-term treatment with carbamazepine is associated with many metabolic changes, including elevations in serum cholesterol, high-density lipoprotein, low- buy trileptal online density lipoprotein, and triglyceride levels. Oxcarbazepine has been reported to be a preferable antiepileptic drug, when compared to carbamazepine with respect to its effects on lipid metabolism, especially cholesterol, high-density lipoproteins, and low-density lipoproteins. The case of a 16-year-old girl who developed high serum cholesterol and low-density lipoprotein levels on both of these medications successively, while triglyceride and high-density lipoprotein levels were unaffected, is reported.

ESL exhibited efficacy in models of trigeminal, neuropathic, and visceral pain. In the trigeminal pain model, the antinociceptive effect of ESL buy trileptal online is, at least in part, mediated by 5-HT1B/1D serotonin and CB1/CB2 cannabinoid receptors. This study indicates that ESL could be useful in the clinical treatment of inflammatory and neuropathic pain.

Although carbamazepine (CBZ) is the most common cause of Stevens-Johnson syndrome (SJS), a new anticonvulsant, oxcarbazepine, which is structurally related to carbamazepine, has been shown to induce SJS, although extremely rarely. Recently, a strong association was found between human leukocyte antigen (HLA) B*1502 and CBZ-induced SJS/TEN in a Han Chinese population. Here, we Benicar Dose report a case with SJS, which was induced by oxcarbazepine. HLA genotyping in the patient showed HLA-B*1518/B*4001. HLA-B*1518 is a HLA-B15 variant. The genetic significance of HLA-B*1518 in association with oxcarbazepine-induced SJS needs to be further studied.

Due to recruitment challenges, fewer than the planned 300 patients participated in the trial, resulting in the trial being underpowered. Overall, 120 patients (mean age 39.7 years) started and 93 completed the trial. The most frequently used SCBs were lamotrigine (39.2%), carbamazepine (30.8%) and oxcarbazepine (27.5%). Eighty-four patients adhered to protocol and discontinued their SCB after cross-titration, but there was insufficient evidence for 36 patients. Retention rate was 73.3% ( Amoxil Capsules 88/120) for all patients and 83.3% (70/84) for those with evidence of SCB discontinuation. Seizure freedom for patients completing maintenance was 14.0% (13/93). Discontinuation due to adverse events (6.7%) and lack of efficacy (3.3%) occurred primarily during cross-titration. Most frequently reported adverse events during treatment were dizziness (23.3%), headache (15.0%) and fatigue (8.3%).

This prospective study was designed to investigate whether or not monotherapy with sodium valproate (VPA) or oxcarbazepine (OXC) affects plasma levels of fatty acylcarnitine esters in children with epilepsy. A total of 56 children with idiopathic partial or generalised epilepsy were included in the study. Patients were assigned to receive either VPA or OXC monotherapy. Free carnitine (C0) and acylcarnitine profiles of the patients were investigated using tandem mass spectrometry at baseline and at six and 18 months after commencement of Depakote Generic therapy. For patients receiving VPA or OXC monotherapy, there were no significant differences in plasma levels of C0, compared with baseline, at six and 18 months (p>0.05). Treatment with VPA for six and 18 months correlated with a significant increase in 3-hydroxy-isovalerylcarnitine (C5-OH) (six months: +23%; 18 months: +73%), and significant decreases in the following acylcarnitines: C6-acylcarnitine (six months: -60%; 18 months: -66%), C14-acylcarnitine (six months: -25%; 18 months: -38%), C16-acylcarnitine (six months: -73%; 18 months: -73%), and C18:1-OH-acylcarnitine (six months: -60%; 18 months: -70%), compared with baseline (p<0.05). In patients receiving OXC monotherapy, on the other hand, plasma concentrations (μmol/L) of acylcarnitines (from C2 to C18:1-OH) fell within the normal reference range. The results of this study indicate that there are significant biochemical changes in acylcarnitines in ambulatory children on VPA monotherapy but these are not clinically significant. OXC monotherapy had no effect on acylcarnitine metabolism in ambulatory children.

the ICER of the adding-on regimens range from negative values for Gabapentin, Levetiracetam and Zonisamide to low values for Lamotrigine (~ 6.4 million Rials/consequence [mil Rls/consq]) and Oxcarbazepine (~7.7 mil Rls/consq) and followed by high values for Topiramate (~21 mil Rls/consq) and Vigabatrin (~43.7 mil Rls/consq) considering the three months of remaining on regimen. By increasing the limit of remaining time to six months, the previously Diovan Generic Picture mentioned regimens persist on negative values. However Oxcarbazepine (~28.7 mil Rls/consq) and Lamotrigine (~13.8 mil Rls/consq) show a steep increase. Topiramate (~23.6 mil Rls/consq) displays a less change. Opposite to other regimens, the ICER value of Vigabatrin (~17.26 mil Rls/consq) has shown an important increase.

Antiepileptic drugs ( Priligy Review Australia AEDs) have many proposed mechanisms of action and are still not fully understood. AEDs are widely used today to treat epilepsy, migraine, neuropathic pain, and bipolar disorder, and other disorders are also being investigated. The focus in this review is the main targets for AEDs in the GABAergic and glutamatergic synapses and possible future sites of action for AEDs to clarify their wide spectrum of activity. The study is a review of recently published investigations of the mechanisms of action of AEDs. The main targets for AEDs in the synapses include enhancement of GABAergic inhibitory neurotransmission, decrease in glutamatergic excitatory neurotransmission directly or via inhibition of voltage-dependent sodium and calcium channels, and interference with intracellular signaling pathways. Vigabatrin, tiagabine, and valproate possess their main actions in the GABAergic synapse. Levetiracetam, topiramate, lamotrigine, carbamazepine, oxcarbazepine, gabapentin, pregabalin, felbamate, and zonisamide decrease glutamatergic excitability. In addition, valproate, carbamazepine, and oxcarbazepine modulate intracellular signaling pathways. Several AEDs of a new generation based on the existing drugs are in development. Future targets to decrease excitability may include GABA and glutamate ionotropic and metabotropic receptors and astrocytes. Knowledge of the sites of action of AEDs in the synapse is important to improve our understanding of their broad spectrum of clinical efficacy and to develop future effective drugs for the treatment of both epilepsy and other neurological and psychiatric disorders.

The bioequivalence of two 600-mg oxcarbazepine oral formulations (Aurene, Ivax Argentina, [test]; and Trileptal, Novartis Laboratories, [reference]) were assessed through the simultaneous determination of oxcarbazepine and the active metabolite 10,11-dyhydro-10-hydroxy-carbamazepine derivative (MHD). 12 healthy male volunteers received a single oral dose of 600 mg of each formulation, in a balanced, randomized, paired, crossover design, with a 7-day wash out period. Oxcarbazepine and MHD concentrations were established at 0.5,1, 1.5, 2, 3, 4, 6, 8, 24 and 48 h post dose by high performance liquid chromatography (HPLC). The regression coefficient determined for oxcarbazepine calibration curves was 0.9933 +/- 0.0236; and for MHD, was 0.9897 +/- 0.0017. The working range for both oxcarbazepine and its metabolite was from 0.1 to 10.0 microg/ml. The quantification limit was 0.1 microg/ml. The 90% confidence interval (CI) geometric mean for oxcarbazepine C(max), AUC(0-48 h) and AUC(0-infinity) ratios (test : reference) were 74.1-146.2%, 85.6-171.5% and 89.6-169.8%, respectively, and the 90% CI geometric mean for MHD C(max), AUC(0-48 h) and AUC(0-infinity) ratios (test : reference) were 84.0-122.3, 93.2-117.9 and 96.5-116.7, respectively. These results established the bioequivalence of two oxcarbazepine formulations from MHD kinetic data used in 12 healthy volunteers, while it was not possible to establish bioequivalence with oxcarbazepine. MHD quantification is preferred to that of the oxcarbazepine in order to assess bioequivalence, as the metabolite is responsible for the antiepileptic activity, presents linear kinetics in the therapeutic range, has lower intra-individual variability and higher plasma levels and half life than the parent drug.

Thirty patients were enrolled in the trial. The mean daily oxcarbazepine dose during the Maintenance Phase was 814 mg. The mean VAS score dropped from 66.3 during the Screening Phase to 34.3 at the end of the trial (P = 0.0001), for a mean reduction of 48.3%. In addition, there were significant improvements in the total pain score and present pain intensity. Oxcarbazepine was well tolerated, with the most common adverse events consisting of drowsiness and dizziness.
