Study Evaluating Changes in Total Drug Load and Seizure Frequency Using Vimpat® (Lacosamide) in Combination Therapy (VICTOS)
This observational study aims to investigate how VIMPAT® is used as adjunctive therapy in clinical practice and will also evaluate the subsequent change in the drug load of patients after addition of VIMPAT® to their treatment regimen.

|Official Title:||A Non-interventional, Observational Study Evaluating Changes in Drug Load and Seizure Frequency Using Vimpat (Lacosamide) in Daily Clinical Practice in Combination Therapy With Sodium Channel Blocking Anti-epileptic Drugs (AEDs) or Non Sodium Channel Blocking AEDs|
- The percent change in ratio of dose and Defined Daily Dose (DDD) for the drug load of concomitant Anti-Epileptic Drugs (AEDs) from Baseline to the end of Observation Period (Day 0 to 6 months) [ Time Frame: From Baseline (Day 0) to 6 months ] [ Designated as safety issue: No ]Drug load is defined as the sum of the ratios of the actual doses divided by the defined daily dose for all concomitant AEDs.

LCM and concomitant sodium channel blocking AEDs
Patients prescribed adjunctive lacosamide (LCM) added to one or more baseline Anti-Epileptic Drugs (AEDs) to include at least 1 sodium channel blocking AED.
LCM and concomitant non sodium channel blocking AEDs
Patients prescribed adjunctive lacosamide (LCM) added to one or more baseline Anti-Epileptic Drugs (AEDs), none of which is a sodium channel blocking AED.
