Psychotropic effects of Brivaracetam

Person on the project: Katja Lehmann

Levetiracetam is an efficient and overall well-tolerated anticonvulsive agent. In a few patients, it can aggravate or provoke agitation or depressive symptoms. A newer anticonvulsive agent, Brivaracetam, by structure and expected efficiency is similar to Levetiracetam, and the hope is that psychotropic effects as observed with Levetiraceetam occur less frequently. We will contribute to a retrospective data collection (EP0104), which tries to address the psychotropic side effects of Brivaracetam, and formulate additional questions to our own data.
