Carisbamate and lamotrigine are anticonvulsants that act on neuronal voltage-gated sodium channels. Carisbamate has shown antidepressant-like effects in animal models of depression, and lamotrigine is a mood stabilizer with a therapeutic effect in depressive episodes of patients with bipolar disorder.

Lamotrigine is a sodium-channel-modulating, antiepileptic drug (AED), which was approved in the USA in 1994 for use in partial-onset seizures. It was ultimately approved for monotherapy in 1998. Lamotrigine has gained widespread use in the USA as both an immediate
Marisol López et al.

Patients treated with antiepileptic drugs can exhibit large interindividual variability in clinical efficacy or adverse effects. This could be partially due to genetic variants in genes coding for proteins that function as drug metabolizing enzymes, drug transporters or drug targets.
Zhi-fei Wang et al.
Acta pharmacologica Sinica, 32(12), 1433-1445 (2011-11-08)
The mood stabilizers lithium, valproate and lamotrigine are traditionally used to treat bipolar disorder. However, accumulating evidence suggests that these drugs have broad neuroprotective properties and may therefore be promising therapeutic agents for the treatment of neurodegenerative diseases, including stroke.
