The authors conducted a 3-month, prospective, open-label study assessing the effects of switching from immediate-release carbamazepine formulations to an equal total daily dose of carbamazepine extended-release capsules (CBZ-ERC) in adolescents and adults with epilepsy. Using validated, epilepsy-specific measures the authors found that switching to CBZ-ERC significantly improved patients' adverse events and quality-of-life measures. Switching to CBZ-ERC also improved seizure control.
