Trileptal rash symptoms

Common Questions and Answers about Trileptal rash symptoms


Hello. Trileptal (oxcarbazepine) does not usually lead to hypertrophy/swelling of glands. But there is a mention of allergic reactions to trileptal. Here is an extract from about this particular side effect. "......Anaphylaxis and angioedema has been reported.......other allergic reactions. Angioedema is characterized by swelling of the faces, eyes, lips or tongue, or difficulty swallowing or breathing.......
Prior to initiation of treatment with LAMICTAL, the patient should be instructed that a rash or other signs or symptoms of hypersensitivity may herald a serious medical event and that the patient should report any such occurrence to a physician immediately.
mri showed nothing and after carbomazapine for 8 months had no symptoms apart from the odd twinge for years. for the last 2 months it has got really bad but would rather not go back on carbomazapine. Is this the best treatment? At the moment just using co dydramol though it just takes edge off rather than really helping. what should i do?
I have a 4 `/2 y/o male with intermitten petechiae on his chest, neck, and shoulder. He has also had 3 nose bleeds and easy to bruise. He was on Trileptal for a month and it was D/Ced because of these symptoms. He has been off of the med. for a week now and more showed up two days ago. His CBC, comp. and Oxcarbazepine level were fine. What could be causing this?
However, since this is day one of 100 mg, could this go away? LMK. Also, am on Trileptal (1800 mg/day, with 300 mg in am and 1500 mg in pm) and Xanax (between 1 1/2 to 2 mg/ day depending on anxiety symptoms). The doctor wants to get Lamictal into my system and then decrease Trileptal slowly as our next step. Anyway, any comments on these side effects? Thanks for your help!!
Lamictal tends to cause a benign rash in 1/10 people, but the incidence of SJS (the really bad rash) is around 1/3000, and the risk is higher in children and if you go up too fast. Some doctors are willing to retry it even if a rash developed the first time, taking it verrrrrry slowly (you can start in the pediatric range), especially if it was working really well for you before the rash appeared. Not all doctors (or patients) are willing to do this, though. Your mileage may vary.
A week later my Dr told me I was bipolar. Put me on Lamictal - got rash, and a few days ago my son got a rash. Our symptoms have mirrored each others, and reaction to meds although I have never been suicidal. He does have insurance through his father, thank goodness. ...
K you have a lot going on! You did describe some symptoms that are similar to lupus. I have rheumatoid arthritis symptoms associated with discoid lupus, fatigue (REAL Fatigue ~ like Gumby after 90 seconds in the microwave Fatigue), depression (which is associated with lupus also.... or probably with many other medical diagnosis), anxiety may also be a symptom of just a bunch of things going on medically ~ heck, anyone would have anxiety dealing with all of this at once!!!
my doctor switched my meds she took me off ativan and lexapro and put me of seroquil and trileptal. i am in sweats all night i have a major headache i am so tired...
Any other associated symptoms like a rash, pain in swallowing, eye discharge,ear discharge , nasal discharge or joint pains that may suggest a viral infection? You have noted however that your CBC is within normal. I suggest you seek consult with a dermatologist.If the node lies on the scalp , a dermatologic consult may help. This may be an infected node.Other differentials may be a sebaceous cyst , lipoma , and a boil.
com that this neuro is a moron when it comes to MS and it's debilitating symptoms. My hopes to getting answers now have been crushed. Especially since my last two episode with my muscles in my legs, ribs and arms contracting for 20 min. I am worried.... Just wondering if anyone has some thoughts or shed a little light over here. Today I am getting a shiver on the left side of my scalp..stange feeling.
I know that the rash can be a dangerous thing and isn't to be messed around with. However, a rash is a frequent side effect of it; the chances of it turning into Steven Johnson Syndrome is rare; it is estimated that your chances of getting it are 1 in 55,000. And that percentage came from several huge outpatient studies that probably weren't all encompassing. The people that had the allergic reaction were obvious, but many that did just fine on the medication probably didn't come forward.
I am new to having this disorder, my neurologist started me on Xanax last year and it was working fine, but now that I have been on it for over a year my symptoms started coming back and worse. Through elevalution he decided that I was bipolar. I don't think I am but I do have major mood swings. So my question is has anybody had any side effects from Lamictal that cause your tongue to feel really tingley and white with small bumps on the back of my tongue.
I've been bounced all over from one doctor/specialist to another. They all keep telling me I'm a mystery to them because my symptoms dont make sense. I could possibly have an autoimmune disorder (sarcoidosis) and I also have a large vitamin D deficency. I was also diagnosed with peripheral neuropathy, with the pain being in my arms more so than my legs. I have burning and tingling and sometimes all over knife-stabbing pain. My legs and arms are heavy.
now that I take 300 mg combined with 600 mg of Trileptal, but the latter, also developed as an anti-seizure med, makes me groggy and spaced-out. I began to take both after a year of taking only Lamictal b/c tremendous stressful events took place in 2006, and I've stayed with that regimen. A decent resource, with some extreme opinions, is
The only thing you have to watch out for with it is a rash that may or may not develop that can lead to Stephen's Johnsons syndrome but don't let that keep you from trying it because it is rare and even if you did happen to experience that side effect (which again is not likely) if you talk to your dr as soon as you see the rash it is treatable.
u see now I had a sore throat for a week now and a low fever no rash as of yet is it to late to serioconvert 8 weeks after and if it were do to that would it have shown positive after a week of a sore throat even though fever started today I'm so confused and scared please help..
My dermatologist says it's not dermatological. It is not red nor swollen, no rash. Even still, I stopped all topical skin care products and makeup with the exception of sunblock when I go out. No improvement. I tried topical Benadryl. Nothing. I've mostly had to wear my hair back as even the slightest grazing against my cheek triggers the itch. There's also a mildly painful tenderness and sometimes when I touch my place, fir the first brief moment my finger feels sharp like a needle on my skin.
I am taking Lamictal 200 mg and Haldol 2 mg. When first diagnosed with Bi-Polar I was apprehensive to take anything that would make me gain weight. My psychiatrist prescribed me Lamictal and it has been a true lifesaver. One thing to know about Lamictal is that it can cause a very serious and life threatening rash dubbed, "Lamictal rash". If you decide to take Lamictal, don't play around with it.
Depakote (divalproex sodium) Gabitril (tiagabine) Keppra (levetiracetam) Lamictal (lamotrigine) Neurontin (gabapentin) Tegretol (carbamazepine) Topamax (topiramate) Trileptal (oxcarbazepine I would agree with the statement that the risk is greater left untreated than with them. My suicidal ideations are MUCH less being treated vs. not. Of course, it's always best to be educated!
Then I would wake with those symptoms and blood on my pillow, Talk about freaky! Turned out I was only having these seizures at night and blood on my pillow was from biting my tongue! I had quite a few seizures before they discovered what the cause was for all my symptoms and I think it was the most difficult time of my life. They FINALLY did an MRI and a Lumbar Puncture which were both positive.
but his eyes are always good! never pinned or large! the other thing is, he is on lithium and trileptal for bipolar. could either of those drugs possibly aid him in keeping his eyes normal? this may not be the right forum for asking this question, but thought who would know better than those that have been there and done that. if no one here can help, perhaps someone could suggest another place to try? thanks in advance for any suggestions you all may have to offer.
I am now on Lamictal, Trileptal and Lryica. These 3 seem to be the best ones that have been working for me so far. I have gone thru 4 1/2 weeks without having a seizure. The longest I have gone. I have 2-3 a month, usually.
if i start questionning diabetes, withdrawal symptoms, cataract, weight gain, i will not take it. give it a try for sure.
I never had a bite that I could recall, or any rash, but with all the symptoms being the same as Lyme, I went into armed with the information. I thought if I could show the neurologist the possibility -- well, you guessed it -- he would not do the test.
For seizures, the dose of Lamictal needed to reach therapeutic (effective antiseizure levels) is very dependent on a number of things including: 1. the simultaenous use of other antiepileptics 2. the simultaneous use of depakote 3.your specific enzyme activity level (don't worry about this). The major things are the other drugs you may be taking. But let's say you're taking this alone.
I am currently taking the old lamictal, trileptal combo, but will have to switch to something else as my perscription limit has run out and it costs around $500 a month for these two. I will probably switch to lithium, depakote as it is cheap and works good for me. The only draw back that really bothers me is the lithium level has to be watched close otherwise it will really shut you down, and I have been treated for lithium toxicity wich is not much fun.
My psy. dr. had me on trileptal and neurontin in the detox unit. I was already on neurontin at a little smaller dose before then for my pain. I have been researching the medicines and am now concerned that I will also have trouble getting off of these. I don't know if it is "time" to wean off or if I should wait a little longer. I feel "fuzzy", but the anxiety HAS gotten better since last week. Any advice would be nice.
about a year How many neuros before diagnosis:2
Here are my symptoms... Right ear pain Right ear fullness/ringing Pain behind right eye spot headaches on right side grinding teeth at night stiff neck - going into my shoulders I had an MRI/MRA back in Oct and all it showed was chronic sinusitis which I am being treated for by my ENT however he knows the pain is not coming from my ear. I am worried. Could this be an aneursym? I know a tumor or something like that would have showed on MRI.
