Aim This is the first review to summarize the population pharmacokinetic studies of oxcarbazepine and explored the significant covariates that may have an impact on the dosage regimen and clinical use of oxcarbazepine. Methods PubMed and Embase databases were searched before 31 October 2020, and references of all selected studies were further screened to identify the pertinent population pharmacokinetic studies of oxcarbazepine. Relevant information about the identified population pharmacokinetic studies was summarised, and the quality of the reports was evaluated. Moreover, studies among infant, children, and adult patients were compared. Results Twelve studies were included: seven studies enrolled pediatric patients only; two enrolled both pediatric and adult patients; and two enrolled adult patients only. The apparent clearance per weight for children (median: 0.0505 L/h/kg, range: 0.016-0.084) and infants (0.078 L/h/kg) were higher than that for adults (median: 0.036 L/h/kg, range: 0.029-0.06). Furthermore, children had a larger variation on clearance compared to adults. Weight, co-administration with enzyme-inducing antiepileptic drugs, and renal function were found to significantly affect the clearance of 10-hydroxycarbazepine. Conclusion The oxcarbazepine dose regimen was dependent on weight, co-administration with enzyme-inducing medications, and renal function. Further study is essential to explore the pharmacodynamics in epilepsy patients and pharmacokinetics of oxcarbazepine in infants.
