how long before trileptal works for anxiety and racing thoughts
I was prescribed this to help with racing thoughts and anxiety how long does this take to work ## Please someone reply ## Hello, Theresa! How are you? Trileptal contains the active ingredient Oxcarbazepine and it can take about 4 to 6 weeks to reach its full efficacy level in the body. Learn more Trileptal details here. If it's not helping after that time period, then you should consult your doctor, because it may not be the right medication to help you. Side effects may include nausea, dizziness, blurred vision and headaches. Is there anything else I can help with?
