Hormonal and Lipid Levels in Male Subjects After a Switch From Carbamazepine to Lacosamide
Multicenter, Open-label, Single-arm Study to Evaluate Hormone and Lipid Levels in Male Subjects With Partial-onset Seizures After a Switch of Treatment From Carbamazepine as Adjunctive Treatment to Levetiracetam to Lacosamide as Adjunctive Treatment to Levetiracetam

The purpose of the trial is to investigate whether changes in lipids and hormonal parameters can be observed in blood when Carbamazepine treatment is replaced with Lacosamide treatment, while Levetiracetam treatment remains unchanged.
