InterpretationNo correlation between either seizure control or toxicity has yet been established, but the majority of patients receiving treatment with conventional doses of clobazam have plasma concentrations below 200 g/L for the parent drug and 2000 g/L for the desmethyl metabolite. Desmethylclobazam has a longer T1/2 and therefore reaches higher plasma concentration.

Ref. Range (Male) 0.1 - 0.4 mg/L
