For all POS and for most POS subtypes, pregabalin resulted in a numerically greater percentage of subjects who exhibited categorical decreases in seizure frequency vs placebo.
Trends of suicide related behavior were compared before and after initiation of AED therapy among AED users with and without epilepsy to individuals without AED use.
