  • 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.

    Normally this happens when we have improper diet, have stressful schedule, drink too much beverages, less sleep or may be lack of sound sleep.
    It is necessary at this point to pay attention
    1. to have NUTRITIOUS diet.
    2. to drink sufficient water.
    3. to go to the bed on time so can have 6-8 hrs rest
    4. Most important Meditiate. "Mindfullness in plane English" a book can help properly in this case.
    5. Please choose slow but permanent solution rather than seeking tablets mostly sleeping pills as quick solution.
