Among the latter, gabapentin, a drug with peculiar pharmacokinetic properties, is highlighted as a therapeutic alternative in refractory epilepsies and eventually for epileptic patients without previous treatment.

The addition of CZP brought about a significant decrease of PHT plasma levels (from 24.8 to 16 micrograms/ml) in spite of increases in the PHT dose. Gradual reduction of CZP, without modifying the PHT(More)
