What is Trileptal (Oxcarbazepine) and when is it used?
Trileptal is the brand name of a medication known as oxcarbazepine, which is a derivation of carbamazepine and which was developed as an anticonvulsant medication. It is therefore used in treating epileptic seizures, most effectively the partial seizures. It has been approved for use in adults and children above the age of 4. The improvements over carbamazepine are that generic Trileptal is much easier on the liver and that it prevents anemia which is often associated with the use of carbamazepine. The mechanism of action of Oxcarbazepine is similar to that of carbamazepine and that of the majority of other anticonvulsants. It has to be noted that it is also different from other anticonvulsants in as that it also promotes the elevated mood in patients and that it can also alleviate anxiety that is often a symptom of epileptic seizures. Generic Trileptal is also often used in the treatment of bipolar disorder and it has been found to be very well tolerated.
Before you order Trileptal (Oxcarbazepine)
Trileptal is an anticonvulsant that is generally better tolerated than other anticonvulsants, but you still need to talk to your doctor before you order Trileptal online and start your regimen. There are several reasons for this. For one, there are certain types of epilepsy that will be non-responsive to the treatment with Trileptal. Also, some risks are involved with taking generic Trileptal if you are suffering from certain conditions. For instance, if you have liver or kidney diseases, your doctor might need to check the functioning of these organs in order to see if you can safely take Trileptal. It is possible that they might adjust your dosage so that it does not affect these organs to full extent. Also, if you are allergic to carbamazepine, you need to tell your doctor this as well, as there is a possibility that you will also be allergic to oxcarbazepine.
Use of Trileptal during pregnancy
While it is still unknown if using Trileptal (Oxcarbazepine) during pregnancy will cause any birth defect, it is known that the drug it was derived from will and therefore it is probable that Trileptal will do the same. Therefore, the use of this medication during pregnancy is usually not recommended. However, if the doctor deems that the benefits of using the medication outweigh the potential benefits, you might still be prescribed Trileptal despite being pregnant. The same goes from breastfeeding women. What has to be noted is that Trileptal may reduce the effectiveness of hormone birth control pills, and your doctor will most likely tell you to start using another form of birth control in addition to the pills.
