Pharmacotherapeutic group
Antiepileptic drugs. Antiepileptic drugs others. Lamotrigin.
The ATX N03AX09 code

the Pharmacological

Lamotrigin Pharmacokinetics Absorption properties is quickly and completely soaked up from intestines. The maximum concentration in plasma is reached approximately in 2.5 h after administration of drug inside. Time of achievement of the maximum concentration slightly increases after meal, but the level of absorption remains invariable. The pharmacokinetics has linear character at reception in a dose to 450 mg.
Distribution
Extent of linking of a lamotrigin with proteins of plasma – about 55% that proves the small probability of influence on toxicity of drug in connection with substitution of plasma proteins. Distribution volume – 0.92-1.22 l/kg.
Metabolism
takes part In metabolism of a lamotrigin enzyme glucuronosyltransferase. Lamotrigin can strengthen somewhat own metabolism depending on a dose. Nevertheless, it was not revealed influences of a lamotrigin on pharmacokinetics of other antiepileptic drugs, and interaction between lamotridzhiny and other drugs which are metabolized by means of the system of P450 cytochrome it is improbable.
Removal
At adults clearance of a lamotrigin averages 30 ml/min. (39±14 ml/min.). Lamotrigin is metabolized to glucuronides which are removed with urine. Less than 10% of drug are allocated with urine in not changed look, about 2% – with excrements. The clearance and elimination half-life do not depend on a dose. Elimination half-life (T1/2) of a lamotrigin averages 33 hours (from 24 to 35 hours) and depends on the accompanying administration of drugs. So, elimination half-life decreases till 14 o’clock at joint appointment with carbamazepine and Phenytoinum and increases till 70 o’clock at joint appointment with Valproatum.
In a research of patients with Gilbert’s syndrome it is established that the average clearance decreased by 32% in comparison with control, but values were within range for population in general.
Children
the Clearance of a lamotrigin calculated on body weight are higher at children, than at adults, it is highest at children up to 5 years. At children the elimination half-life of a lamotrigin is usually shorter, than at adults. So, average rates are about 7 hours at joint appointment about enzyme – the inducing drugs, such as carbamazepine and Phenytoinum, and 45-50 hours – when assigning with Valproatum.
Patients of advanced age
point the Available data to lack of significant differences in clearance of a lamotrigin at patients of advanced age in comparison with young patients.
Patients with a renal failure
and the patients who are on a hemodialysis make Average values of clearance of a lamotrigin for patients with chronic kidney disease 0.42 ml/min. (chronic kidney disease), 0.33 ml/min. (between hemodialysis sessions) and 1.57 ml/min. (during a hemodialysis). Average elimination half-life makes 42.9 hours, 57.4 hours and 13.0 hours respectively in comparison with 26.2 hours at patients with normal function of kidneys. During the 4-hour session of a hemodialysis about 20% (5.6 – 35.1%) of a lamotrigin are brought out of an organism. Thus, in a renal failure the initial dose of a lamotrigin is calculated according to the standard scheme of prescribing of antiepileptic drug.
Patients with an abnormal liver function
Average values of clearance of a lamotrigin at patients with an abnormal liver function of easy, average and heavy degree (stages of A, B and C on a scale of Chayld-Pyyu) make 0.31, 0.24 and 0.10 ml/min. respectively in comparison with 0:34 ml/min. at patients with normal function of a liver.
Generally, doses of a lamotrigin have to be reduced by 50% at patients with average degree of a liver failure and for 75% – at patients with heavy degree of a liver failure. The initial and increasing doses have to be adjusted depending on the clinical response to the carried-out therapy.
The pharmacodynamics
of Lamiktal® is a blocker potential – dependent natrium channels of presynaptic membranes of neurons. Ламиктал® suppresses the steady repeating activization of neurons and inhibits release of a glutamate – the neurotransmitter playing a key role in development of epileptic seizures.
The mechanisms providing therapeutic action of a lamotrigin in bipolar disorders were not installed. Interaction with tension of natrium channels is supposed.

Indications

Cancellation of Lamiktala® at bipolar disturbances
Sharp cancellation of Lamiktala® does not cause increase in frequency of occurrence or weight of side reactions in comparison with placebo. Patients can cancel Lamiktal® at once, without gradual decrease in its dose.
The general recommendations about dosing of Lamiktala® at special groups of patients
of the Woman accepting hormonal contraceptives
Use of a combination of ethinylestradiol / levonorgestrel (30 mg / 150 mkg) are increased by clearance of a lamotrigin almost twice that leads to decrease in level of a lamotrigin. After titration, maintenance of higher doses of a lamotrigin (twice higher) can be necessary for achievement of the maximum therapeutic effect. At cancellation of contraceptive tablets within a week, increase in level of a lamotrigin was observed twice. The adverse phenomena connected with a dosage cannot be excluded. Thus, attention has to be paid to use of a method of contraception without existence of week of a break in administration of drug, as the first line of therapy (for example, continuous hormonal contraceptives, or non-hormonal methods).
The beginning of reception of hormonal contraception at the patients who are receiving treatment by maintenance doses of Lamiktala® and not using drugs, inducing liver enzymes
the Maintenance dose of Lamiktala® in most cases it has to be increased twice. From the moment of the beginning of reception of contraceptives it is recommended to increase a dose of a lamotrigin by 50-100 mg/days every week according to the individual clinical answer. Doses should not exceed the recommended limits in case of the adequate clinical response to the carried-out therapy.
Measurement of concentration of a lamotrigin in serum, till the beginning of use of hormonal contraceptives, can be considered confirmation that basic concentration of a lamotrigin is maintained now. If necessary, the dose has to be adapted. At the women accepting hormonal contraceptives which include one week of inactive treatment (week without use of tablets) control of level of a lamotrigin in serum it has to be carried out within the 3rd week of active treatment, i.e. in days from 15 on 21 cycles of reception of tablets. Thus, attention has to be paid to use of contraceptive means without existence of week without reception of tablets, as the first line of therapy (for example, continuous hormonal contraceptives, or non-hormonal methods)
the Termination of reception of hormonal contraceptives at the patients who are receiving treatment by maintenance doses of Lamiktala® and not using the drugs inducing liver enzymes
the Maintenance dose of Lamiktala® in most cases has to be reduced by 50% according to the individual clinical answer. It is recommended to lower a drug dose by 50-100 mg every week for 3 weeks, before achievement of the optimum clinical answer.
Measurement of concentration of a lamotrigin in serum before phase-out of hormonal contraceptives, it is possible to consider confirmation that basic concentration of a lamotrigin is maintained now. At women who wish to stop reception of hormonal contraceptives which include one week of inactive treatment (Week without tablets) the control of level of a lamotrigin in serum has to be carried out within the 3rd week of active treatment, i.e. in days from 15 on 21 cycles of reception of tablets. It is not necessary to collect samples for assessment of levels of a lamotrigin after the constant termination of contraceptive tablets within the first week after a stop in reception of tablets.
The beginning of therapy of Lamiktalom® by the women who are already accepting hormonal contraceptives prior to treatment
Increase in a dose should be supported according to the normal recommended dose described in the above-stated tables.
The beginning and the termination of reception of hormonal contraceptives by patients which already accept maintenance doses of Lamiktala® and also ACCEPT inductors of a glyukuronidation of a lamotrigin
Correction of the recommended maintenance dose of a lamotrigin is not required.
Combined use with atazanavirom/ritonaviry
In spite of the fact that atazanavir/ritonavir reduces plasma concentration of a lamotrigin, is not present need to adjust the recommended dose of Lamiktala® and to change the schemes of treatment shown at monotherapy or combination therapy.
At the patients who are already accepting a maintenance dose of Lamiktala® without glyukuronization inductors when assigning an atazanavira/ritonavir the increase in a dose of a lamotrigin or its reduction in case of cancellation of an atazanavira/ritonavir can be required.
Combined use with lopinaviry / ritonaviry
Is not present need to adjust the recommended dose of a lamotrigin at addition to the existing therapy lopinaviry / ritonaviry.
At the patients who are already accepting maintenance doses of a lamotrigin and not accepting glyukuronidation inductors, the dose of Lamiktala® has to be increased if lopinavir / ритонавир it is added, or is reduced if use of a lopinavira/ritonavir is stopped. Monitoring of a lamotrigin in plasma should be carried out to and within 2 weeks after addition, or cancellation of a lopinavira/ritonavir to reveal, need of correction of a dose of Lamiktala®.

Resuming of administration of drug of Lamiktal®
When resuming therapy by the drug Lamiktal® the attending physician has to estimate carefully need of increase in a maintenance dose at the patients who stopped administration of drug for any reasons in connection with risk of developing skin rashes of heavy degree when assigning high initial doses of drug. It must be kept in mind that than the bigger interval is available between the last and expected administration of drug, especially assessment of the appointed maintenance dose has to be careful. If having rummaged in reception exceeds the indicator equal to five elimination half-life of a lamotrigin (more than 150 hours) it is recommended to begin reception with that maintenance dose which was established before cancellation.
Administration of drug of Lamiktal® should not be resumed if treatment was cancelled because of development of rash if the expected advantage of reception does not exceed possible risks.
Patients of advanced age (65 years are more senior)
Change of the scheme of drug dosing is not required.
