- 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.

- Had nms in 2005, will trileptal increase chance of recurrence?
In 2005 I had NMS, which was not detected by my drs for 4 months. I'd been on Lexapro & Seroquel for 2 yrs, but was weaned from Lexapro & placed on Lamictal 3/05. Began getting low-grade fevers, which I was told were not caused by the Lamictal. I quit taking it anyway, fevers (along with uncontrollable shivering) continued & got higher. By 5/05 my temps were reaching 105 deg F. Husband said I became combative, refused to go to hospital. Early June/05 he came home to find me wrapped in blankets, with a temp over 105 F. He tried to place me in a tub of cold water, said I was rigid & screamed when he tried to move me. I was in the tub, speaking "in tongues" (his description, I have no memory of this). He called 911, took me to hospital. I woke, no idea where I was or why. After a lumbar puncture & 2 days in ICU I went home. The fevers continued...2 weeks later he came home to find me wrapped in sheets, towels, blankets, with the heat on full (it was in the 90's outside) he called ambulance again. I awoke to find myself under an ice blanket with nurses pushing large vials of dantrolene into both arms, several liters. Another LP, a stint in ICU...this time they told me it was NMS. The dr who dxd me said he was surprised I was alive, & not a vegetable, as my temp had peaked at 109 deg F. I suffered brain damage; short-term memory loss, brain can't control my body temp, my blood pressure went up. An arteriogram showed completely healthy heart & arteries, no plaque at all. I lost all body fat as well as some muscle mass. The fevers continued even after stopping the Seroquel. I visited my PCP for a checkup in 9/05, temp was normal. I started shuddering, my temp went up a full degree every 5 minutes. PCP admitted me to ER, my heart rate was over 272 B/M; they stopped my heart 3 times to "reset" it, which didn't work. I spent 3 days in hospital. Several months later my P doc tried me on Lamictal alone; I got Stevens-Johnson syndrome. I stopped the drug as soon as the signs appeared. I've been untreated, except for Neurontin & Primidone, until my manic episodes became unlivable. 3 weeks ago I went 8 days with no sleep, became psychotic. My P doc gave me Trileptal, which has evened my moods, but I've been getting low-grade fevers (highest was 103.6). Would having had NMS in the past make me more prone to falling to it again with the Trileptal? It's the only new med I've taken in over a year.
- Could trileptal cause benign intracranial hypertension
My Daughter is 9 and was on Trileptal for three years and just started to have severe headaches that lasted for two weeks and were quickly and poorly diagnosed as a status migraine. Another week of pain and incorrect treatments finally led to more tests and the correct diagnosis of IIH. Supposedly the most susceptible person (1 in 5,000) to get IIH in the US is an over weight female in her 20's. Based on my daughters information and the information on this site, Female Trileptal patients appear to have a 1 in 1500 chance of IIH and if you are female and also aged 2 to 9, your chances are about 1 in 250. Or 20 times more susceptible than heavy, adult females.
- Severe night sweats and hot flashes with cymbalta?
I am 24 years old and I have been having severe night sweats for about the last 2 and a half years. I have been on Cymbalta for about 4 and a half years. These night sweats are so severe that I typically wake up 2-4 times a night drenched in sweat where I have to change the sheets, get a new blanket, and change my clothes. This is usually happening to me about 4-6 times a week. I am not sure if this is related to Cymbalta or not. I have gone to my doctor and had all of the tests done, everything is normal. All of the doctors that I have gone to have been clueless as to what could be causing my night sweats. I am thinking of trying to change my Cymbalta to a different medication, however as I am sure most know, it is a pain in the butt to try and find a good antidepressant that works with your body and any other medications you may be taking. The only thing I am going to try before this is using Menopause medications vitamins. I have found a vitamin/supplement that is supposed to help with night sweats and hot flashes and does not have any hormones in it. I have only been taking it for 2 nights, so no results yet. I hope this works so I dont have to change off of Cymbalta.
- I have less pain from my trigeminal neuralgia when i'm manic.
Has anyone had a relief of pain when they are manic?
- Serious oxcarbazepine (trileptal) side effect
My mom suffered from acute facial nerve pain for almost last 8 years which was diagnosed for Trigeminal Neuralgia. The pain started suddenly and she started and continued the treatment with Lyrica. In the beginning, the pain would go away after several months and start again in a year or two. However, the intervals between the pain periods narrowed until they became more often despite the fact that she was never off the adjusted dosages of Lyrica. what's more, her Dr. added Oxcarbazepine (Trileptal)as he lowered the Lyrica as the result of extreme sleepiness side affect for Lyrica.
As the pain continued without relief, the dosages also adjusted. However, she started a severe case of muscle jerks whenever she moved around like standing up, walk or used her legs or hands. She was not able to live without constant assistance due to the sudden unpredictable muscle convulsion / jerks (similar to "knee jerks" when stimulated). None of the dr.s could determine what was going on. Until ONE Neurologist who treated my mom during her hospitalization following a fall, said that the muscle jerks/convulsions were noted as drug Trieptal side effect. NO WHERE and NO other source my family or I had ever come upon warned about this. That Dr.'s opinion was CONFIRMED when my mom started to slowly get off the Trileptal. Unfortunately, I still haven't seen any warning about this side effect related to the Trileptal. Of course, we are aware of the fact that not every patient might not have affected by this side effect, however, as long as that Dr. advised us and the symptom does subsiding by Trileptal/oxcarbazepine dose reduction from my mom's medication, I think this is necessary to be immediately addressed and studied by the medical society and the Pharma. co. who is making the drug.

From this study (2 years ago):
the night sweats started as soon as my dose on both went up. Trileptal twice a day and seroquel from 50 mg to 100mg.
From this study (5 years ago):
I have been taking 24-hour Zyrtec for 14 years (daily) and due to a recent sinus infection, had to stop taking it to let my sinuses drain. Stayed off the medication for three weeks. I'm back on it again and experiencing some abnormal effects. My hands are aching and sometimes have a burning sensation. It feels like I have a hard time focusing my eyes, or when I do focus, I feel dizzy. This mainly occurs with things I'm looking at up close. I've had nightsweats since I can remember (I'm 27) and lately they have gotten really bad--every night I end up drenched. Could the drug have completely left my system and now I'm having side effects from starting up again? I've missed taking a Zyrtec here and there (once every two+ months) since starting the drug when I was 13, but never had any effects except my allergies and athsma acting up. I'm also concerned becuase I was taking the drug while my body/brain was still developing...could that have caused any effects?
