Abstract

The authors analyze the efficacy of intravenous lacosamide (LCSM) in combined therapy for partial epilepsy. The data available in the literature and their 2 observations suggest that intravenous LCSM is promising when its oral use is impossible, including in therapy for status epilepticus/series of partial seizures.
