Antiepileptic drugs, including Lamotrigine, are known for their narrow therapeutic range and complex drug–drug interactions. A concomitant therapy with several antiepileptic drugs is common in clinical practice. For the above reasons, therapeutic drug monitoring is often conducted for this class of drugs.

1,2 Seizures are episodes of sudden, transient disturbances in cerebral excitation that occur when a sufficient number of cerebral neurons begin to fire rapidly and in synchronized bursts. 3 Depending on the type of seizure, neuronal activity may remain localized in a specific area of the brain, or it may spread.

Antiepileptic drugs (AEDs) used to treat seizure disorders are today among the most common medications for which clinical laboratories perform therapeutic drug monitoring (TDM) (1, 2). The first-generation of AEDs—carbamazepine, ethosuximide, phenobarbital, phenytoin, primidone, and valproic acid—were introduced by U.S.

and European drug manufacturers several decades ago, and TDM.
