Oxcarbazepine abuse

Common Questions and Answers about Oxcarbazepine abuse


Avatar n tn In May of 2006 I was diagnosed with Bipolar Type I after having a manic episode resulting from a combination of stress and marijuana abuse. I was sleepless for a week and neither me nor any of my friends (who were with me and helped me through it) knew anything of bipolar disorder or mania. As such no one knew what was happening to me.
Avatar n tn Some other nerve drugs that have been somewhat effective are oxcarbazepine. Topical agents can also be effective and avoid systemic side effects such as Capsaicin cream. Hopefully a combination of the above of the right drugs at lower doses (together) will provide the most benefit with the least side effects Make sure you are wearing the right shoes and inspect your feet for trauma or skin breakdown regularly, so as to avoid any more cause for pain.
Avatar m tn What is the best way to taper down on this after 3 years of abuse? The mental anguish is the worst part, I feel worthless to my family and I am scared to do this on my own but I know it would not be fair to put this on them as well. Thank you all for your support....
