How much and how often should you use this medicine?


Adults: Initial oral dose is 100 mg to 200 mg once or twice daily gradually increased at weekly intervals by increments of 200 mg to a usual maintenance dose of 0.8 to 1.2 g daily in 2 to 4 divided doses; up to 1.6 g or more daily may occasionally be necessary. 

Children: The usual oral dosage in children is 10 to 20 mg per kilogram body-weight daily and suggested daily doses for children are: up to 1 year of age, 100 to 200 mg; 1 to 5 years, 200 to 400 mg; 5 to 10 years, 400 to 600 mg; 10 to 15 years, 600 mg to 1 g. 

Oral doses are divided and usually given 2 to 4 times daily. A twice daily regimen may be associated with improved compliance but may produce widely fluctuating plasma-carbamazepine concentrations leading to intermittent side effects. However, twice daily administration may be suitable for patients receiving carbamazepine as monotherapy, and without peak-related side-effects. Also, slow-release formulations can minimize fluctuations in plasma concentration and may allow twice-daily administration.

 

Contraindications

Should not be administered in patients with a history of hepatic disease, serious blood disorder hypersensitivity to the drug, or any of the tricyclic compounds, such as amitriptyline, imipramine, nortriptyline, trimipramine, etc. Carbilepp should not be used immediately before, in conjunction with, or immediately after an MAO inhibitor. MAO inhibitors should be discontinued for a minimum of fourteen days or longer if the clinical condition allows.
