The main changes include:

Section 4.2:

Section 4.4:

Tegretol CDS information on the risk of skin reactions potentially associated with HLA-B*1502 and HLA-A*3101 alleles was reassessed in light of the July 2012 EU PhVWP text. As a result of this analysis, for HLA-A*3101 the existing recommendation for testing at-risk patients is unchanged in the CDS while in EU the testing for this allele cannot be recommended due to insufficient data. The same terminology “allele frequency” is used for both alleles and some frequencies were corrected in some populations.

 

DRESS is described as part of the multi-organ hypersensitivity disorder.

 

Addition of a Warning/Precaution on hyponatremia and hypothyroidism.

 

Section 4.5:

Rifabutin, voriconazole, simvastatin, atorvastatin, lovastatin, cerivastatin and ivabradine are added to the part of the Interactions describing the decrease by Tegretol of the plasma levels of concomitant agents.

 

Section 4.6:

Congenital malformation text is supplemented with data from pregnancy registries, with information on the additional risk in combination with valproate and with information on higher risk with dose of carbamazepine > 400 mg per day in monotherapy.

 

In breast-fed infants, cases of cholestatic hepatitis have been reported and careful observation is recommended.

 

Section 4.7:

Addition of ataxia, diplopia, impaired accommodation and blurred vision as ADR impacting Driving and using machines.

 

Section 4.8:

“Reactivation of human herpesvirus 6 infection”, “bone marrow failure”, “sedation”, “memory impairment”, “colitis”, “lichenoid keratosis”, “onychomadesis”, “fracture” and “bone density decreased” are added as postmarketing ADRs.

 

Preferred terms according to MedDRA version 15.0 are used for the all ADR.

 

Section 4.9:

Cases of rhabdomyolysis and of depressed level of consciousness have been reported. It is specified that hemodialysis is an effective method of treatment for overdosage.

 

Section 5.3:

This section was expanded and rewritten although no new data are available.
