In six depressed epileptic patients stabilised on carbamazepine therapy, addition of the antidepressant agent viloxazine (300 mg/day for three weeks) induced a marked (average 55%) increase in steady-state plasma carbamazepine concentration. The concentration of the active metabolite carbamazepine-10,11-epoxide also increased during viloxazine therapy, but(More)
In order to evaluate the influence of chronic antiepileptic drug treatment on the kinetics of the antidepressant viloxazine (VLX), six drug-free control subjects and six epileptic patients treated with one or two anticonvulsants (phenobarbital, carbamazepine or phenytoin) were given a single oral dose of VLX (200 mg). On a separate occasion, the patients(More)
The effect of viloxazine (150-300 mg daily for 21 days) on plasma phenytoin levels at steady state was examined in 10 epileptic patients stabilised on a fixed phenytoin dosage. After starting viloxazine treatment, plasma phenytoin concentrations increased by 37% on average (range 7-94%) from a mean value of 18.8 micrograms/ml at baseline to a mean value of(More)
OBJECTIVES of this study were to assess diastolic function in pregnant women with abnormal glucose tolerance (AGT), compared with normal glucose tolerance (NGT) women, and to evaluate the insulin resistance status and its association with Doppler-echocardiographic indexes. Echocardiograms of 108 consecutive Caucasian women with singleton pregnancies were(More)
The effects of Viloxazine (VLX, 100 mg b.i.d. for 10 days) on the steady-state plasma concentrations of Oxcarbazepine (OXC), its active metabolite 10, 11-dihydro-10-hydroxy-carbazepine (MHD) and the corresponding diol (DHD) were studied in a randomized, double-blind cross-over placebo-controlled trial in 6 epileptic patients stabilized on a fixed dosage of(More)
The diurnal fluctuations in dipropylacetic acid (DPA) plasma levels were examined in ten epileptic patients following a chronic treatment with 3 or 2 daily doses of dipropylacetamide (DPM). The highest/lowest DPA levels ratios observed throughout 24 hrs were 1.18 and 1.36, respectively, but the difference in the data was not statistically significant (p(More)
The pharmacokinetics of a single oral dose of carbamazepine-10,11-epoxide (CBZ-E, 100 mg) were compared in 10 patients on chronic monotherapy with lamotrigine (LTG, 200-300 mg/day) and in 10 drug-free healthy control subjects. CBZ-E pharmacokinetic parameters in LTG-treated patients were found to be similar to those observed in controls (half-life: 7.2 +/-(More)
