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.

trileptal mixed with neurontin

why wou a dr mix trileptal with neurontin for a depressed patient ## They can both be used to treat some mood disorders, and it is common to mix them, if someone hasn't responded to other medications. The FDA lists the typical side effects as possibly including nausea, dizziness, headache, dry mouth, and weight gain. How is the patient doing on these medications?

Unpleasant Side Effects Of Trileptal

I’ve been prescribed Trileptal off-label to treat my bipolar disorder. I had my doubts as to the efficacy of this drug in that capacity, though others have sworn by it, but am now at a position where I cannot continue to safely take this medication. Two weeks ago I was prescribed 600mg daily (two 300mg tablets). During those two weeks, I had a bit of a behavioral “episode,” and so I was upped to 900mg at my last visit. Haven’t had any issues with it up to now, and hadn’t noted any side effects let alone actual effects of the medication. It might as well have been sugar pills. That is, until about 4AM this morning. I awoke dry lipped with a vicious itch on my posterior. I absconded to the bathroom to scratch this itch and noted a silver dollar size welt on m...

Trileptal side effects

I have taken Trileptal for many years to treat trigeminal neuralgia. My legs become very heavy in the afternoon and evening. There is no swelling. They also are constantly cold.

Does this last for weeks or does it go away? Please tell me that it goes away soon. I can't keep anything down and have no appetite. ## To the OP, what do you mean by your legs becoming very heavy?

I don't have seizures. ## I have no idea, but I am being prescriped Trileptal for depression too, please help me out on this subject as well. ## I was just prescribed trileptal.

Trileptal/Blood Thinner?

Is the prescription drug Trileptal or its generic a blood thinner? ## Regarding a generic form of Trileptal: are any made that are white capsules? I was told the manufacturer of this specific generic was caraco, however no one has ever heard of a 'generic Trileptal' capsule that is all white. Reason being - I think I was given the wrong drug, and thus had withdrawl symptoms for a week, followed by a few small break through seizures, ending with a gran mal - first ever... any info would be much appreciated. thanks. ## Hello I read your post. My generic is trileptical. I'm on the drug been for a few months. I'm skeptical with it as it says you mix with oxycodone it can lower your blood level and over dose. I had surgery have many left and when I took that I skipped this ps...

Trileptal /joint pain

I have been taking Trileptal for about a year for TN. I have been experiencing joint pain more and more. My neurologist thinks this is not a side effect? I just want to know if anyone else has this problem!! Also has any natural ways to deal with TN worked for anyone? ## Hello, Tina! How are you? Your neurologist is most likely right, typically this medication is known to cause back pain, but not joint pain, as listed by the FDA and NIH. My fiancé is on this medication, so I've read up on it quite a bit. Other typical side effects are listed as possibly including weight changes, dry mouth, change in taste, earache and muscle weakness. Are you on any other medications? Can anyone taking this for TN chime in with their experience? ## Hi there!! Thanks for your reply! This is the ...

lasting trileptal side effects

I started trileptal at 16 or 17 years old, took it for about 5 years, and have been off of any psychiatric meds for about 4 or 5 years now. I developed a slight tick that doesn't interfere with my day to day, but I notice it. People close to me have never pointed it out, so I don't think it's obvious, but sometimes I have to try twice to pick something up because my finger or neck/head twitches. Should I expect this to be permanent? I know it's on the list of side effects for trileptal. Could it be degenerative? ## Hi Mia, Sorry to hear about your experience with Trileptal. I find it unusual that symptoms would linger for so long even after stopping the medication. In most cases I've been aware of, one should expect adverse effects to subside after discontinuing the ...

Trileptal works great

I just started using ic oxcarbazepine a week ago. I take 150mg twice a day and it started kicking in within the first few days of taken the medication. Normally most psych medications take two weeks to kick in but my doctor told me I would notice a difference within the first few days then notice more of a major difference as time goes on. I have been on a bunch of different psych medications which have taken almost a month to work for me but I strongly recommend anyone to have they're doctor prescribe them ic oxcarbazepine ( generic brand of trileptal ) for bipolar disorder or depression because you will notice the change within the first couple days. ## Hello, Angie! How are you doing? I am very glad that this medication works so well for you. Not all medications work for everyone...

Is a gold tablet with CG CG 31 31 Oxprenolol?

HELP! Gold, oblong/rectangular tablet, CG CG on one side, 31 31 on other, both sides scored ## Unable to locate this medication from a manufacturer. It could be an over the counter medication. ## If it is a form of oxprenolol then it would be a medication used for high blood pressure. It causes diarrhea, headache, dizziness, and nervousness. ## I found it, the poster just misread the imprint as they are very hard to make out on these pills. It is actually CG GC TE 31. This is Trileptal 300mgs, Oxcarbazepine. This is a med used to control partial seizures in someone with epilepsy and can also be used to treat facial nerve pain in people who suffer from Trigeminal Neuralgia. So it is not Oxprenolol. ## I'm impressed! ## Wow, thanks. That comment means a lot coming from you. Anyway, af...
