Clinical Effects for Perampanel

In clinical studies, perampanel was shown to reduce the frequency of seizures in people with epilepsy whose seizures were inadequately controlled on one to three other anti-seizure medications. In these studies, people given perampanel in addition to their other seizure medicines had a reduction in their seizure frequency by 4.4 percent to 20.2 percent more than those given a placebo (a "sugar pill" with no active ingredients). In general, higher doses resulted in greater seizure reduction than lower doses.
