1. Dear Drugs-Forum readers: We are a small non-profit that runs one of the most read drug information & addiction help websites in the world. We serve over 4 million readers per month, and have costs like all popular websites: servers, hosting, licenses and software. To protect our independence we do not run ads. We take no government funds. We run on donations which average $25. If everyone reading this would donate $5 then this fund raiser would be done in an hour. If Drugs-Forum is useful to you, take one minute to keep it online another year by donating whatever you can today. Donations are currently not sufficient to pay our bills and keep the site up. Your help is most welcome. Thank you.

    Pullar T (http://www.ncbi.nlm.nih.gov/sites/e...l.Pubmed_DiscoveryPanel.Pubmed_RVAbstractPlus), Haigh JR (http://www.ncbi.nlm.nih.gov/sites/e...l.Pubmed_DiscoveryPanel.Pubmed_RVAbstractPlus), Peaker S (http://www.ncbi.nlm.nih.gov/sites/e...l.Pubmed_DiscoveryPanel.Pubmed_RVAbstractPlus), Feely MP (http://www.ncbi.nlm.nih.gov/sites/e...l.Pubmed_DiscoveryPanel.Pubmed_RVAbstractPlus).

    1. The single dose pharmacokinetics of N-desmethylclobazam (NDMC) and clobazam were studied in eight healthy male volunteers.

    2. Steady-state pharmacokinetic data are described from four healthy male volunteers and eight epileptic patients taking NDMC.

    3. A single 30 mg dose of NDMC produced a greater Cmax (P less than 0.001) and AUC0-infinity (P less than 0.005) and a shorter tmax (P less than 0.05) and t1/2 (P less than 0.01) for NDMC than did 30 mg clobazam.

    4. Mean steady-state NDMC concentrations were greater in male patients than in female patients and also in male patients compared with male volunteers. The differences between patients and volunteers might be explained by concomitant antiepileptic medication.
