Generic Name: Triple trial pack
What is Triple Trial Pack?
The data is very, very scant. Two controlled trials conducted in Germany in the early 1980s showed that Trileptal was as effective as both Haldol and lithium for the treatment of acute mania 1but the numbers were small and the outcome measures used were unfamiliar to current-day researchers. Oddly, not a single controlled trial of Trileptal has been published since then.
More recently 2we have a well-done retrospective chart review of 42 patients with refractory bipolar disorder who were placed on Trileptal average dose 1056 mg QD either as monotherapy or as an adjunct to their existing regimens. Another recent paper 3 reported a trial of Trileptal monotherapy dose range: 900-2100 mg QD in 12 manic, hospitalized patients.
Thus, while the evidence so far is underwhelming, glowing case reports keep getting published and presented at meetings, giving TCR the sense that a definitive controlled trial must be lurking out there somewhere, hopefully soon to hit the press. Until then, there is little to be lost in trying it on those bipolar patients who are not severely ill and who decline trials of less tolerable alternatives.
Most of the frequent prescribers start at 150 mg QHS or BID, and will gradually increase over a week or two to about 600 BID.
Pooled analyses of 199 placebo-controlled clinical trials mono-and adjunctive therapy of 11 different AEDs showed that patients randomized to one of the AEDs had approximately twice the risk adjusted Relative Risk 1. In these trials, which had a median treatment duration of 12 weeks, the estimated incidence rate of suicidal behavior or ideation among 27,863 AED-treated patients was 0. There were 4 suicides in drug-treated patients in the trials and none in placebo-treated patients, but the number is too small to allow any conclusion about drug effect on suicide.
The increased risk of suicidal thoughts or behavior with AEDs was observed as early as one week after starting drug treatment with AEDs and persisted for the duration of treatment assessed. Because most trials included in the analysis did not extend beyond 24 weeks, the risk of suicidal thoughts or behavior beyond 24 weeks could not be assessed. Table 2 shows absolute and relative risk by indication for all evaluated AEDs. Anyone considering prescribing TRILEPTAL or any other AED must balance the risk of suicidal thoughts or behavior with the risk of untreated illness.
Epilepsy and many other illnesses for which AEDs are prescribed are themselves associated with morbidity and mortality and an increased risk of suicidal thoughts and behavior. Should suicidal thoughts and behavior emerge during treatment, the prescriber needs to consider whether the emergence of these symptoms in any given patient may be related to the illness being treated. Patients, their caregivers, and families should be informed that AEDs increase the risk of suicidal thoughts and behavior and should be advised of the need to be alert for the emergence or worsening of the signs and symptoms of depression, any unusual changes in mood or behavior, or the emergence of suicidal thoughts, behavior, or thoughts about self-harm.

These signals must be carefully regulated for the brain and nerves to function properly. It is thought to achieve this by preventing sodium from entering nerve cells when they begin to fire rapid and repetitive electrical signals.
A build up of sodium in the nerve cells is necessary for the electrical signal to build up and be passed on to other nerve cells. As oxcarbazepine prevents this, it helps stabilise the electrical activity in the brain.
