Title

Comparative Risks of Organ Dysfunction Associated with Individual Antiepileptic Drugs Following FDA Black Box Warning

Abstract Summary

This retrospective cohort study analyzed patients in a large nationally representative administrative claims database between 2006 and 2011. The sample consisted of Medicaid, Medicare, and Commercial patients continuously enrolled with both medical and pharmacy benefits for 6-months prior to the index fill for an AED. Patients were included if they had a diagnosis of epilepsy (ICD-9-CM 345.X) and had no prior AED fills (new users). Logistic regression was used to follow eligible patients up to six months after AED initiation to assess the relative odds of organ dysfunction.
