Trileptal Overview

Oxcarbazepine is an anticonvulsant drug primarily used in the treatment of epilepsy.[2] There is some evidence for oxcarbazepine as a mood-stabilizing agent and thus, it can be used as add-on therapy for bipolar disorder in patients that have failed or are unable to tolerate approved treatments.[3][4] Common side effects include nausea, vomiting, dizziness, drowsiness, headache, double vision and trouble with walking.[2] Although not common, anaphylaxis may occur.[2] Due to its structural sim...

Trileptal side effects
3 Replies RSS
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. I also have Raynaud's so I always have cold hands and feet. ## Does Trileptal cause Tinea Vericolor when taken by children under 3 years old? ## I've just been put on Trileptal and am having nausea and vomiting. 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? Are they weak? Is it hard to walk? Are you becoming dizzy? The FDA lists the typical side effects of this medication as possibly including nausea, dizziness, headache, and mood changes. Mary, that ...

Trileptal/Blood Thinner?
3 Replies RSS
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
6 Replies RSS
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
1 Reply RSS
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
1 Reply RSS
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...
