Description
Curator's Comment:: https://www.drugs.com/pro/lacosamide.html | http://www.wikidoc.org/index.php/Lacosamide | https://www.ncbi.nlm.nih.gov/pubmed/17461888 | https://www.ncbi.nlm.nih.gov/pubmed/19552484

Lacosamide is an anticonvulsant that is FDA approved for the treatment of partial-onset seizures. The precise mechanism by which lacosamide exerts its antiepileptic effects in humans remains to be fully elucidated. In vitro electrophysiological studies have shown that lacosamide selectively enhances slow inactivation of voltage-gated sodium channels, resulting in stabilization of hyperexcitable neuronal membranes and inhibition of repetitive neuronal firing Common adverse reactions include diplopia, headache, dizziness, nausea. Patients with renal or hepatic impairment who are taking strong inhibitors of CYP3A4 and CYP2C9 may have a significant increase in exposure to Lacosamide tablets.

Approved Use

VIMPAT is indicated for: Partial-onset seizures (1.1): Tablets and oral solution are indicated for adjunctive therapy in patients ≥17 years. Injection is indicated as short term replacement when oral administration is not feasible in these patients. 1.1 Partial-Onset Seizures VIMPAT (lacosamide) tablets and oral solution are indicated as adjunctive therapy in the treatment of partial-onset seizures in patients with epilepsy aged 17 years and older. VIMPAT (lacosamide) injection for intravenous use is indicated as adjunctive therapy in the treatment of partial-onset seizures in patients with epilepsy aged 17 years and older when oral administration is temporarily not feasible.
