Does Anybody Take Trileptal And Zonegran? What Effect Does It Have On Your Body?

A MyEpilepsyTeam Member said:

I take oxcarbenazepine ([[treatment:trileptal:550b19d76bcd61bbe[[phone:6000226]]) 1200:]] mg (600 twice a day). My memory sucks. I wobble when I walk, I ramble on when I talk. I often fish for words., my wife says I am grumpy and irritable.
I need to salt my foods as to not have a sodium drop.
Seizures are less frequent, as long as I watch out for triggers.

Be careful with the Trileptal because I had a bad reaction to it and I had been taking it for a few months. I started feeling really dizzy, I couldn't think clearly, I couldn't walk and I would feel nauseous.

Several months ago I started getting dizzy, blurred vision, and crying for no reason. My doctor believed it was the Trileptal 300mg & reduced the dosage from 2 in the morning to 1 in the morning but kept me on the same dosage at night, 2 at night. Since then I haven't had any problems. Your friend, Becky
