Levetiracetam is a pyrrolidine with antiepileptic activity. Stereoselective binding of levetiracetam was confined to synaptic plasma membranes in the central nervous system with no binding occurring in peripheral tissue. Levetiracetam inhibits burst firing without affecting normal neuronal excitability, which suggests that it may selectively prevent hyper-synchronization of epileptiform burst firing and propagation of seizure activity.
Rotigotine is a dopamine receptor agonist with preference for D3 receptors over D2 and D1. As such, it is an effective anti-Parkinsonian agent. Racemic rotigotine is about 50 times as potent as quinpirole, the gold standard D2 agonist.
