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.

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.

trileptal 1300 mg

Fourteen patients were enrolled. Seven patients were in the decreased-extent group and six in the increased-extent group; one patient was excluded because she did not demonstrate any change in CSD. We found that seizure control differed significantly between the two groups: seizures were well-controlled in six out of seven patients in the decreased-extent group (85.7%), but in only one of six patients (16.7%) in the increased-extent group (p=0.03). The other variables did not differ between the groups.

The greater number of antiseizure drugs available today makes it possible to tailor treatment to individual patient needs, allowing more patients to be free of debilitating adverse effects. Additionally, some patients can achieve complete seizure freedom even after failing one or more other antiepileptic drugs.

A historical cohort design investigated the nationwide population of outpatients with bipolar disorder treated in the Department of Veterans Affairs who were newly initiated on an antimanic agent between 2003 and 2010 (N=27 727). The primary outcome was likelihood of all-cause hospitalization during the year after initiation, controlling for numerous demographic, clinical, and treatment characteristics. Potential correlates of effect were explored by investigating time to initiation of a second antimanic agent or antidepressant.

The purpose of the study was the comparative evaluation of antiepileptic drugs (AED) impact on quality of life (QOL). One hundred and ninety-two patients with symptomatic and probably symptomatic focal epilepsies (mean age 30, 6 +/- 1.05) were investigated. All patients received the following AED as monotherapy: valproate (52), carbamazepine (36), topiramate (56), levitiracetam (24), oxcarbazepine (24). The clinical and neurological examination, EEG and/or video-EEG-monitoring, CT and/ or MRA scan, neuropsychological tests (31-item Quality of Life in Epilepsy--QOLIE-31, version 1 and HUDS) were performed after 3 months of treatment. The higher results of QOL assessment were obtained in the LEV and OXC groups (83.3 and 72%, respectively), the lowest ones--in the CBZ and VPA groups (16.5 and 17%). Clinically relevant emotional disorders occurred more frequently in patients receiving TPM (21.8%), VPA (21.4%) and CBZ (16.6%), significantly rarely in the OXC (8.3%) group and were absent in the LEV group. The strong correlations between QOL, effectiveness, adverse effects and psycho-emotional disorders of AED treatment were found. The best QOL scores were observed in patients treated with newer AED.

Blister formation and eccrine sweat gland necrosis is a cutaneous manifestation associated with states of impaired consciousness, most frequently reported after overdoses of central nervous system depressants, particularly phenobarbital. The case of a 45-year-old woman who developed "coma blisters" at six distinct anatomic sites after confirmed (laboratory) phenobarbital poisoning, associated with other central nervous system depressants (clonazepam, promethazine, oxcarbazepine and quetiapine), is presented. A biopsy from the left thumb blister taken on day 4 revealed focal necrosis of the epidermis and necrosis of sweat gland epithelial cells; direct immunofluorescence was strongly positive for IgG in superficial blood vessel walls but negative for IgM, IgA, C3 and C1q. The patient was discharged on day 21 with no sequelae.

After a description of the anatomical-functional organization of the human trigeminal system, this chapter discusses the diagnostic and therapeutic options for trigeminal neuralgia (TN). In about 15% of patients who present with the clinical picture of typical TN, this is secondary to a major neurological disease, i.e., benign tumors of the cerebellopontine angle or multiple sclerosis. Some clinical criteria that were used to distinguish between classic and symptomatic TN, such as age at onset, involvement of the ophthalmic division, and responsiveness to medical treatment, are no longer considered reliable. It is recommended that all patients undergo magnetic resonance imaging (MRI) or trigeminal reflex recording. Carbamazepine (CBZ) and oxcarbazepine (OXC) are the first-choice medical treatments. Although other drugs may be effective, these are indicated when the patient cannot reach the therapeutic dosage of CBZ/OXC because of adverse events. Patients unresponsive to CBZ/OXC should be made aware of the available surgical interventions. Surgical procedures (including percutaneous lesions to the ganglion/root, microvascular decompression (MVD) in the posterior fossa, and gamma knife radiosurgery) are extremely efficacious with relatively few complications: each procedure has some advantage and disadvantage with respect to the other. Only MVD is a non-destructive procedure. This chapter also describes management of glossopharyngeal neuralgia, which is often misdiagnosed, and some other chronic pain conditions mediated by the trigeminal system, such as ophthalmic postherpetic neuralgia (PHN).

This paper describes two fatal cases of planned complex suicide by two male individuals, 86 and 51 years old, involving ingestion of petroleum distillates and hanging. Remarkable internal findings during autopsy of both cases included the intense odor of petroleum distillates that alerted authorities to the suspicion of ingestion. The initial toxicological screening and quantitation of these compounds were performed by gas chromatography with flame-ionization detection, and confirmation was performed using gas chromatography-mass spectrometry in total ion chromatogram mode after liquid-liquid extraction of biological samples following a previously published analytical method. In Case 1, diesel fuel No. 2 concentrations were < 5 mg/L heart blood and 18,160 mg/L gastric content (total amount 6356 mg); therapeutic concentrations of citalopram were also found in blood. In Case 2, xylene (mixture of isomers) concentrations were 0.3 mg/L in heart blood and 0.1 mg/L in gastric content (total amount 0.006 mg); ethanol (1.12 g/L) and therapeutic concentrations of nordiazepam, oxcarbazepine, ibuprofen, and metamizol were also found in blood. The medical examiners in both cases reported the cause of death as hanging, and based upon examination of the scenes and the anatomopathological and toxicological data, the manners of death were determined to be planned complex suicide. We would like to alert toxicologists of the importance of testing for petroleum distillates when there is a suspicion of ingestion of these products due to the odor observed at the scene of death and/or during autopsy. The results of these toxicological investigations can help to determine the manner of death and the medicolegal interpretation.

Treatment of manifestations: Symptomatic pharmacologic and rehabilitative management, including psychosocial support, are the mainstay of care; valproic acid, the first drug of choice, diminishes myoclonus and the frequency of generalized seizures; clonazepam, approved by FDA for the treatment of myoclonic seizures, is an add-on therapy; high-dose piracetam is used to treat myoclonus; levetiracetam appears to be effective for both myoclonus and generalized seizures. Topiramate and zonisamide may also be used as add-on therapy. Surveillance: Lifelong clinical follow up, including evaluation of drug treatment and rehabilitation. Agents/circumstances to avoid: Phenytoin aggravates neurologic symptoms or even accelerates cerebellar degeneration; sodium channel blockers (carbamazepine, oxcarbazepine), GABAergic drugs (tiagabine, vigabatrin) and gabapentin and pregabalin may aggravate myoclonus and myoclonic seizures.

The effects of 7-nitroindazole (7NI, a preferential neuronal nitric oxide synthase inhibitor) on the anticonvulsant activity of four second-generation antiepileptic drugs (AEDs: felbamate [FBM], lamotrigine [LTG], oxcarbazepine [OXC] and topiramate [TPM]) were studied in the mouse maximal electroshock-induced seizure (MES) model. Moreover, the influence of 7NI on the acute neurotoxic (adverse-effect) profiles of the studied AEDs, with regard to motor coordination, was determined in the chimney test in mice. Results indicate that 7NI (50 mg/kg; i.p.) significantly potentiated the anticonvulsant activity of OXC, but not that of FBM, LTG and TPM against MES-induced seizures and, simultaneously, it enhanced the acute neurotoxic effects of TPM, but not those of FBM, LTG and OXC in the chimney test in mice. 7NI at the lower dose of 25 mg/kg had no effect on the antiseizure activity and acute neurotoxic profiles of all investigated AEDs. Pharmacokinetic evaluation of interactions between 7NI and LTG, OXC and TPM against MES-induced seizures revealed no significant changes in free (non-protein bound) plasma AED concentrations following 7NI administration. Moreover, none of the examined combinations of 7NI with AEDs from the MES test were associated with long-term memory impairment in mice subjected to the step-through passive avoidance task. Based on our preclinical study, it can be concluded that only the combination of 7NI with OXC was beneficial, when considering its both anticonvulsant and acute neurotoxic effects. Moreover, the lack of impairment of long-term memory and no pharmacokinetic interactions in plasma of experimental animals make the combination of 7NI with OXC worthy of consideration for the treatment of patients with refractory epilepsy. The other combinations tested between 7NI and LTG, FBM and TPM were neutral, when considering their both anticonvulsant effects and acute neurotoxic profiles, therefore, no useful recommendation can be made for their buy trileptal clinical application.

Comparing retention rates of new AEDs can provide useful insight into their tolerability buy trileptal and efficacy. This study showed highest retention rate with LTG, which was significantly different from ZNS (p=0.0025), LEV (p<0.0001), OXC (p=0.0024), and TPM (p<0.0001). Beside ineffectiveness, other leading causes of discontinuation were adverse behavioral effects with LEV, rash with LTG and OXC, and sedation for TPM and ZNS.

Clinicians have limited experience with assessment and treatment of overdose from newer anticonvulsant medications. The aim of this investigation was to evaluate buy trileptal clinical effects of newer anticonvulsant overdose, determine if a relationship exists between dose and clinical effect, and if a particular agent appears more toxic in overdose. This was a retrospective study using electronic poison center data, evaluating clinical outcomes from newer anticonvulsant overdose. The Toxicall™ database from January 1, 2002 to December 31, 2011 was queried using key words: "gabapentin," "lamotrigine," "levetiracetam," "tiagabine," "topiramate," "zonisamide," "pregabalin," and "oxcarbazine." Polypharmacy overdose and children less than 15 years of age were excluded. Charts were reviewed by two abstractors for pharmaceutical, self-reported dose, clinical effect score, and clinical signs, symptoms, and vital signs recorded in the chart. Ordinal logistic regression was used to evaluate the relationship between drug type, dose, age, and sex to clinical effect score. Out of 501 cases identified, 347 met the final inclusion criteria. There were 116 gabapentin, 67 lamotrigine, 15 levetiracetam, 15 tiagabine, 56 topiramate, 23 pregabalin, and 55 oxcarbazepine cases. Overdose of newer anticonvulsants frequently results in altered mental status. Seizures may be more common with tiagabine, lamotrigine, and oxcarbazepine. There was one death reported from intentional overdose of topiramate. An information index was created to rank drug toxicity based on reported signs and symptoms for each overdose. There was no significant effect of dose on severity of outcome (β = 0.12, p = 0.23). However, the risk of a more severe outcome score was significantly increased with tiagabine relative to other drugs (β = 2.8, p = 0.001). Lamotrigine ranked highest in terms of toxicity (HT = 1.66) and number of interventions performed (HI = 1.17), and levetiracetam the lowest (HT = 0.98; HI = 0.88). We could not identify a dose-effect in these data which likely reflects the limitations of self-reported doses. Despite limitations of these data, the risk of more severe outcome scores appear to be higher with tiagabine overdose while lamotrigine overdose appears to result in more reported signs, symptoms, and interventions.

Risks associated with pharmacological treatment of bipolar disorder are heightened during reproductive events. Treatments need to be planned with the mutual agreement of both the treating physician and the patient and tailored to the needs of the individual so as to minimise risk while providing adequate treatment. Conventional treatments have all been associated with teratogeny in first trimester exposure, lithium with cardiac malformation and valproate and carbamazepine with neural tube malformations. There have been an insufficient number of first trimester exposures to the newer anticonvulsant mood stabilisers, lamotrigine and oxcarbazepine, to determine whether there is a safety advantage in switching to these agents. Increasingly, atypical antipsychotics are being suggested as useful agents for the treatment of buy trileptal bipolar disorder. While not known to be teratogenic, there are other reproductive safety concerns associated with these agents. Bipolar disorder patients may be prescribed antidepressants, and many of these agents are associated with a low safety risk during reproductive events, however data regarding use of these agents are currently equivocal. Adverse outcomes from inadequate pharmacological prophylaxis have been documented for both the mother and the baby. Risks and benefits need to be carefully balanced based on an accurate review of the evidence.

Concentrations of carbamazepine (CBZ), 10-hydroxy-carbazepine (10-OH-CZ, metabolite of oxcarbazepine), lamotrigine (LTG), levetiracetam (LEV), topiramate, or phenytoin were determined by using one to four catheters during IOMD in the medial temporal gyrus. Furthermore, to calculate the individual recovery of every catheter, an in vitro microdialysis was performed with ultrafiltrate of serum concurrently obtained from the respective patient. In addition, AED levels were determined in the resected brain tissue, CSF, and serum of the same patients. Altogether buy trileptal 22 pharmacoresistant epilepsy patients (nine male, 13 female patients; age 15-54 years) with complex partial seizures or secondarily generalized seizures were involved. In a first series, IOMD samples 40 min after beginning of the microdialysis (flow rate, 1 microl/min), and in a second series, continuous measurements 25, 30, 35, and 40 min from the beginning were evaluated (flow rate, 2 microl/min). With in vitro recovery data of the individual catheters, the concentration in the extracellular space (ECS) was estimated.

Antiepileptic drugs (AEDs) are widely used not only in the treatment of epilepsy but also as treatments for psychiatric disorders. Pharmacoresistance of AEDs in the treatment of epilepsy and psychiatric disorders is a serious problem. Transport of antiepileptic drugs by P-glycoprotein (Pgp, ABCB1, or MDR1), which is overexpressed in buy trileptal the blood-brain barrier, may be a mechanism for resistance of AEDs. For most AEDs, conflicting evidence precludes consensus on whether they are substrates of Pgp. The objective of this study was to evaluate whether analogs and metabolites of the AED carbamazepine are substrates of human Pgp.

The choice of an antiepileptic drug (AED) in patients with epilepsy is mainly based on efficacy and safety of each drug. However, these criteria of drug selection should be further evaluated according to the epileptic syndromes, and adjusted to the sex and age of the patient. Unfortunately, very few studies have been conducted based on these latter criteria. We conducted a survey on the management of epilepsy treatment in adults. This survey was undertaken in France, and led to the establishment of a French consensus on antiepileptic drug treatment in adult patients with newly diagnosed epilepsy. Patients were grouped into 18 categories according to the epileptic syndrome (absence epilepsy, juvenile myoclonic epilepsy, undetermined idiopathic generalized epilepsy, symptomatic or cryptogenic partial epilepsy and unclassified epilepsy), and to the patient's gender and age. Our survey suggests that there is a consensus among French epileptologists for the choice of AEDs, mainly based on the epilepsy syndrome. Gender also plays a crucial role. Sodium valproate and lamotrigine are the two drugs of choice for generalized epilepsies, as well as for undetermined epilepsies. Lamotrigine is often prefered for women of childbearing age. First line AEDs in partial epilepsy are carbamazepine (particularly for men), lamotrigine (particularly for women), and gabapentin (in the elderly). In cases of failure and/or intolerance to one of these AED, the principal alternatives are oxcarbazepine, sodium valproate buy trileptal and topiramate.

The purpose of this study was to evaluate the influence of the glycine site antagonist of the NMDA receptor, MRZ 2/576 (8-chloro-4-hydroxy-1-oxo-1,2-dihydropyridazino[4,5-b]quinolin-5-oxide choline salt), on the anticonvulsive activity of carbamazepine, oxcarbazepine, diphenylhydantoin, phenobarbital and valproate against maximal electroshock (MES)-induced seizures and ethosuximide, valproate and clonazepam against pentetrazole (PTZ)-induced seizures in mice. MRZ 2/576 applied intraperitoneally 5 min before electroconvulsions, at the dose of 10 and 15 mg/kg, significantly raised the convulsive threshold (from 6.9 to 8.8 and 10.8 mA respectively). At lower doses, it did not affect the threshold. MRZ 2/576 applied at the dose of 5, 10 and 20 mg/kg did not influence the clonic phase of PTZ-induced seizures, but protected the animals against the tonic phase. The anticonvulsant effect of a given antiepileptic drug was expressed as its ED(50) value (in mg/kg), which represents the dose of the drug required to protect 50% of animals against MES or PTZ seizures. MRZ2/576 co-administered at a subprotective dose (5 mg/kg) with carbamazepine, oxcarbazepine, diphenylhydantoin Lopid Dose , phenobarbital or valproate, significantly reduced their ED(50) values in MES test. Also, at the dose of 2.5 mg/kg it enhanced the protective activity of carbamazepine and valproate. At the lowest tested dose (1.25 mg/kg), it still potentiated the anticonvulsant activity of valproate. However, MRZ 2/576 (5 mg/kg) applied with valproate, ethosuximide or clonazepam did not influence their protective effects in the PTZ test. The combinations of MRZ 2/576 with almost every studied antiepileptic drug (providing a 50% protection against maximal electroshock or PTZ-induced seizures) did not produce motor impairment in the chimney test nor long-term memory deficit measured in the passive avoidance task. Only valproate alone or combined with MRZ 2/576 impaired both of these measures. It may be concluded that MRZ 2/576 enhanced the anticonvulsive activity of antiepileptic drugs against MES without accompanying potentiation of adverse effects. However, there was no positive interaction in the PTZ test. Finally, pharmacokinetic interactions do not seem responsible for the obtained results because MRZ 2/576 (5 mg/kg) did not alter the free plasma levels of the antiepileptics tested in the present study.

The authors consider that the body of evidence summarised in this review is insufficient to allow any firm conclusion to be drawn about the use of antiepileptic medication in the treatment of aggression and associated impulsivity. Four antiepileptics (valproate/divalproex, carbamazepine, oxcarbazepine and phenytoin) were effective, compared to placebo, in reducing aggression in at least Coumadin Tab Colors one study, although for three drugs (valproate, carbamazepine and phenytoin) at least one other study showed no statistically significant difference between treatment and control conditions. Side effects were more commonly noted for the intervention group although adverse effects were not well reported. Absence of information does not necessarily mean that the treatment is safe, nor that the potential gains from the medication necessarily balance the risk of an adverse event occurring. Further research is needed.

No fewer than eight new antiepileptic drugs (AEDs) with diverse mechanisms of action have been introduced into clinical practice in the 1990s. Short monographs on lamotrigine, vigabatrin, gabapentin, oxcarbazepine, felbamate, topiramate and vigabatrin have been prepared for this review. Details are provided of mechanisms of action, clinical pharmacokinetics and adverse drug interactions. Each section concentrates on the efficacy, tolerability and practical use of these drugs. The areas where they have potential for superiority over the established AEDs have been highlighted. Specific indications and dosage schedules have been provided. As many of these AEDs have, as yet, limited licences, an attempt has been made to identify ongoing studies and important omissions. Where possible, the eventual place of the new agent in the pharmacological management of epilepsy has Zofran Drug Interactions been assessed. A more limited summary has been included of zonisamide which, although licensed in Japan, is still regarded as an investigational drug elsewhere. Short discussions of three of the most promising investigational compounds, namely remacemide, losigamone and levetiracetam, complete the picture.

Infants born with tuberous sclerosis complex, a genetic condition resulting from a mutation in TSC1 or TSC2, are at increased risk for intellectual disability and/or autism. Features of epilepsy, neuropathology, genetics, as well as timing and type of mechanism-based medications have been proposed as risk factors. Neurodevelopmental outcomes have been reported among these studies; however, few include data about the individuals' early neurodevelopmental Benicar Drug profile, a factor that may contribute significantly to these outcomes. Further, there is no clinical standard for the neurodevelopmental assessment of these infants. The paucity of data regarding the natural history of neurodevelopment in infants with tuberous sclerosis complex and the lack of a gold standard for neurodevelopmental evaluation present a significant challenge for clinicians and researchers.

The clinical pharmacokinetics of the 4 antiepileptic drugs lamotrigine, vigabatrin, gabapentin and oxcarbazepine have been reviewed in this paper. All the drugs have linear kinetics and reliable absorption, although the saturation of transport across the gut may occur at high doses with gabapentin. All the drugs can be conveniently given as a twice daily dosage apart from gabapentin, which has a short half-life and a midday dose is needed. Unlike many of the older drugs, lamotrigine, vigabatrin and gabapentin have a predominantly renal excretion and are not metabolised through the cytochrome P450 system. They do not induce their own metabolism or that of other commonly used anticonvulsants. Similarly, clinically important interactions with other major classes of drugs metabolised this way, such as anticoagulants or steroid hormones, do not occur. Oxcarbazepine, however, can cause oral contraceptive pill failure. Oxcarbazepine is immediately metabolised to a hydroxy metabolite and could be considered a prodrug. It appears to Claritin Chewable Tablets have fewer pharmacokinetic interactions than carbamazepine. Valproic acid (sodium valproate) inhibits the glucuronidation of lamotrigine and increases its half-life; when used together, dosage modification of lamotrigine is needed to avoid toxicity.

The authors prospectively followed 662 pregnancies in women with epilepsy who used enzyme-inducing AED. Of the 667 neonates, 463 were exposed to carbamazepine, 212 to phenytoin, 44 to phenobarbital, 11 to primidone, and 7 to oxcarbazepine. The control subjects were 1,324 nonepileptic pregnancies (1,334 neonates) matched for maternal age, parity, number of fetuses, and delivery date. None of the mothers received vitamin K(1) during pregnancy, but all infants received 1 mg vitamin K(1) intramuscularly at birth.

This study was conducted to compare the cross-reactivity of two commercially available carbamazepine (CBZ) immunoassays (PETINIA and EMIT 2000) with carbamazepine-10,11-epoxide (CBZ-E), the active metabolite of CBZ. Oxcarbazepine (OCBZ) and its main metabolite 10-hydroxy-carbazepine (HCBZ) have a chemical structure closely related to that of CBZ. The cross-reactivities of these two drugs were also investigated. In the first part of the study, Lyphocheck blank human serum and Chemonitor quality controls (containing CBZ without CBZ-E) were spiked with variable amounts of CBZ-E. The apparent CBZ levels were measured by PETINIA and EMIT 2000 methods. The interference from OCBZ and HCBZ was directly assessed by measuring the apparent CBZ levels in Chromsystems Trileptal quality controls (containing OCBZ and HCBZ). In the second part of the study, the CBZ levels of serum samples from 49 patients, including 2 patients with massive CBZ ingestion, were measured by immunoassays and compared with a high-pressure liquid chromatography (HPLC) reference technique allowing the simultaneous measurement of CBZ and CBZ-E. The antibody used in the PETINIA assay cross-reacts (about 90%) with CBZ-E. In one case of CBZ poisoning (CBZ and CBZ-E levels measured by HPLC were 26.2 and 18.2 mg/L, respectively), CBZ level measured by PETINIA was falsely elevated (42.5 mg/L). In contrast, the specificity of EMIT 2000 was satisfactory (29.5 mg/L). The two immunoassays tested showed low cross-reactivity with OCBZ and HCBZ. In conclusion, it appears that the CBZ-E metabolite present in samples can falsely increase CBZ levels measured by the PETINIA assay.
