- Can you stop trileptal cold turkey?
I ran outta my Trileptal, the last time I took it was in the hospital on Saturday I was there for 2 days and I was normally taking 300mg 2x daily and the hospital gave me 600mg 4x on Saturday and the day before I took the one 300mg I had left in the morning. Since the hospital I have not had any Trileptal to be able to take because they didn't send me home with any because I'm from another State and I'm not sure if that's why but I should have my medicine tomorrow but I feel horrible and I just wanna know if physically I will be alright? Thank you so much and would appreciate a quick responce.

- 57 year old male diagnosed with stage 2 hypertension
Started on 20mg once a day, I was working long hours so I'm not sure when the fatigue first started. At physical doctor thought the dosage should be doubled. In a few days the fatigue started to become overwhelming. I was having a hard time staying awake, not because I was drowsy but felt that weak. I thought it was because I was working on a difficult project. No amount of rest could alleviate the extreme severe fatigue. I was tired all the time, even on weekends and holidays. I have never felt so run down. I thought it was my job causing these issues. I was almost ready to leave the job because of my concerns about my fatigue. I then considered, it might be the Lisinopril. I stopped taking it for a couple of days and then went back to my 20mg dosage. I felt much better but I am considering not taking any. At 40 mg it lowered my blood pressure but I have a daily rise in BP due to my commute and that still continued. This drug scares me. I had never been so overwhelmed.

Comments from related studies:
From this study (1 day ago):
I have been having bladder contractions every 6-8 weeks over the last 2 years. I have been to an urologist who has looked inside the bladder and said it looked excellent. I have also had many urine cultures done which have come back negative. I have seen my GI doctor who just prescribed nortriptline to help calm the colon thinking this would help the bladder. I do not have colon pain. I have also seen an obgyn who gave me a vaginal cream to possibly help the bladder. No one seems to know what is causing the pain. I do have some urine retention at times but no burning while urinating. I am now wondering if it is a side effect of one or more of my medications. Thank you
