Carbamazepine And Metabolite

The Carbamazepine And Metabolite test contains 1 test with 2 biomarkers.

Carbamazepine and its metabolite (10, 11-carbamazepine epoxide) are widely used for control of generalized tonic-clonic, partial-onset, complex and mixed seizure disorders. The metabolism of carbamazepine in epileptic patients has several different pathways that can be altered when the patient is co-medicated with other anticonvulsants and, therefore, its therapeutic level should be monitored along with its metabolite in their free and protein bound states.
