Barrese V, Miceli F, Soldovieri MV, Ambrosino P, Iannotti FA, Cilio MR, Taglialatela M. Neuronal potassium channel openers in the management of epilepsy: role and potential of retigabine. Clinical Pharmacology: Advances and Applications. 2010;2:225–236.

On page 233, left-hand column, second paragraph, line 17 forward, it says:
“The most common reasons for discontinuation were dizziness, confusion, somnolence, and asthenia, with the highest proportion of withdrawals in patients receiving retigabine 1200 mg/kg.72 In RESTORE 1, where retigabine was used at 1200 mg/kg, urinary or renal disorders were observed in 12% of patients.”

In this passage, both instances of “retigabine 1200 mg/kg” should be “retigabine 1200 mg/day.”
