The efficacy of TPM add-on in partial epilepsy is consistent across efficacy endpoints and independent of study population characteristics. The response at 200 mg TPM is similar to the response at higher doses, but as drop-outs caused by adverse events are more frequent above the 200 mg dose, this pooled analysis supports that 200 mg daily is a good target dose for add-on therapy in most patients with partial epilepsy, showing an excellent balance between efficacy and tolerability.
