The odds ratios were nonsignificant but increased for lamotrigine (1 cheap nizagara 100mg mastercard. Fracture risk analyzed by various skeletal sites was significant for carbamazepine at the hip (1 cheap nizagara 100mg. Risk was not significant by skeletal site for phenytoin order nizagara 100mg fast delivery, tiagabine cheap nizagara 25mg on line, topiramate purchase nizagara 100mg without a prescription, or valproate. There was a significant dose-response relationship for carbamazepine, oxcarbazepine, and valproate, and no significant dose-response relationship for lamotrigine, phenytoin, tiagabine, or topiramate. The results suggest that the risk for any or site-specific fracture may be greater for carbamazepine, lamotrigine, oxcarbazepine, and valproate than for phenytoin, tiagabine, and topiramate; however, one cannot definitely conclude that there are differences between antiepileptic drugs, because the confidence intervals overlapped. No data were available for gabapentin and levetiracetam. Antiepileptic drugs Page 44 of 117 Final Report Update 2 Drug Effectiveness Review Project A second case-control study of 1018 cases and 1842 matched controls also found that 131 exposure to antiepileptic drug increased risk of fracture. The risk increased with duration of exposure, with the strongest association at greater than 12 years of use (adjusted odds ratio 4. It should be noted that this study was done within a cohort study of epilepsy patients; the data may or may not translate to nonepileptic patients. Stevens-Johnson syndrome and toxic epidermal necrolysis Two fair-quality case-control studies provided comparative assessments of risk for Stevens- 132, 133 Johnson syndrome and toxic epidermal necrolysis. The first provided comparative data for 133 5 antiepileptic drugs. It was conducted in hospitals in France, Germany, Italy, and Portugal. There were 352 cases of Stevens-Johnson syndrome or toxic epidermal necrolysis with onset before hospitalization and 1579 matched hospitalized controls. The univariate relative risk of Stevens-Johnson syndrome or toxic epidermal necrolysis for 8 or fewer weeks of use was 57 (95% CI, 16 to 360) for phenobarbital, 91 (26 to infinity) for phenytoin, 120 (34 to infinity) for carbamazepine, 25 (5. The multivariate relative risk for phenobarbital was 59 (12 to 302). The univariate relative risk for more than 8 weeks of use was 6. Short-term use of other antiepileptic drugs was a potential confounder for an association with valproate. Therefore, the risks of these serious skin reactions appear to be increased for short-term (≤ 8 weeks) use of phenobarbital, phenytoin, and carbamazepine. The numbers for lamotrigine were too small for meaningful analysis. The second study identified 35 case subjects with Stevens-Johnson syndrome or toxic epidermal necrolysis based on hospital discharge ICD-9-CM codes and 105 randomly selected, 132 matched controls. The results suggest that carbamazepine and phenytoin are similar in their risks of Stevens-Johnson syndrome or toxic epidermal necrolysis; however, confidence intervals were wide because of the small number of cases. Ascertainment of cases may have been incomplete because of misdiagnoses or missing records. Aplastic anemia and agranulocytosis A good-quality, population-based, case-control study of antiepileptic drug–related agranulocytosis and aplastic anemia was conducted in Barcelona, Spain, as part of a 22-year systematic, multicenter (17 hospital hematology units), collaborative surveillance study 134 (International Agranulocytosis and Aplastic Anemia Study, IAAAS). A total of 177 case subjects and 586 matched controls was included. In the conditional primary analysis, 5 cases and 1 control were exposed to carbamazepine, and 2 cases and 1 control were exposed to phenytoin. The odds of drug exposure within the week before the index day of agranulocytosis were significant for carbamazepine (odds ratio 10. The odds ratio was not calculated for phenytoin because of the small number of exposures. The population-attributable risk and incidence of agranulocytosis for exposure to carbamazepine within the week before the index day were 2. These results suggest that the risk of agranulocytosis is greater with carbamazepine than phenytoin; however, confidence intervals were wide. A similar study used data from the UK General Practitioners Research Database to 135 identify 173 cases and 497 matched controls. The study covered the years 1987 to 2002, when carbamazepine, phenytoin, and valproate were the most commonly used antiepileptic drugs, and lamotrigine saw only limited use. Only 16 of the 173 cases were using an antiepileptic drug prior to the event, although use of any antiepileptic drug was statistically significantly associated with aplastic anemia (odds ratio 9.
