Common Questions and Answers about Seizure medications oxcarbazepine


Avatar n tn My question is with him taking these two type of medications he is still having seizure and cant sleep. Me as a mother do know what to think and do to help him. Can someone help me with this. My son loves to go out and dance and maybe has a couple of beers is the beer causing the seizures or is the body heat causing the seizure? What should I do when he falls on the floor and jurks? He comes out of the seizure within 5 mins.
Avatar m tn I find their diagnosis interesting as most seizures of the gelastic type are tied to small tumors near the hypothalamus. My hope for you and your son is that the actual type of seizure he suffers from is in the category that goes away as they approach puberty.
3061811 tn?1340643446 The neurologist has tried keppra and oxcarbazepine for medications. None have helped keep his seizures under control. My husband now has seizures every 3 or so days. His seizures are so bad that they debilitate him for many hours after his episodes. Prior to my husbands tooth being extracted, he was a very heathy 44 yr old male. He had very good job as a flooring contractor. Since than he has lost his job and can barely do his side jobs that come in.
Avatar n tn She keeps losing feeling in her left hand like she normally feels right before she has a seizure, but no seizure. The absent seizures are back. I just dont know if her body is getting used to the meds, but she can hardly function when she gets home from teaching kindergarten. How has your diagnosis been going? Anthing succesful so far?

Avatar m tn ) I know I’ve given you a long list, sorry about that. But of these medications, usually the medications tried the first time around are either lamictal, tegretol, trileptal, keppra, or zonegran. Of these first try medications, keppra, lamictal, trileptal, and tergretol usually have the fewest side effects on a moderate dose, and are often the first drugs of choice amongst docs for focal epilepsy.
Avatar n tn Medical therapy which should be tried include treatments for trigeminal neuralgia, which include tri-cyclic anti-depressants (Elavil), and anti seizure medications (such as carbamazepine, oxcarbazepine, and gabapentin). What I would recommend is an appointment with our Pain Management center. They will be able to evalaute your mother and recommend a treatment plan. You could also ask about other surgical options. Good luck.
Avatar n tn Dear Doctor, I'm an Italian woman aged 33. 5 months ago I had a seizure that left me with a dystonia in the face. Then things got worst with continuous seizures lasting for hours : the muscles of my face went up and down, like in a series from right to left. I also felt contractions in my arms and feet. I had a permanent headache that nothing could relieve. Partial epilepsy was diagnosed at EEG, and left hippocampal sclerosis. I was put under Valium and Depakine for 2 days. Relief, at last!
3242988 tn?1359310116 Hello, I am a 56 year old woman & newly diagnosed & would like to talk with others with my conditions. I suffered a traumatic brain injury in 1987. My nuerologist said he thought I have been having seizures for 25 years. They are non convulsive seizures, I just sit & stare for a split second. He put me on Keppra which I did not tolerate well. I took it for 3 weeks, I stopped 2 weeks ago & am still having extreme anxiety & nausea.
1740498 tn?1328966185 He said it sounded like a seizure but was puzzled that I do not have epilepsy and am on a couple of seizure meds for my pain (gabapentin and oxcarbazepine). Provigil was not helping me, so I stopped taking it. Another time was this past Christmas Eve, when I was with family and friends. People were just hanging out in the living room, talking. I again felt like I lost several seconds, and I felt far away or like the world was far away as I came back to awareness.
1451522 tn?1285595740 I went through a lot of medications that provided some relief. All of them were anti-seizure medications, gabapentan, carbemazepine, lyrica and oxcarbazepine. All of them had side effects, which I got used to, to some degree and none of them worked immediately. They all take weeks to build up in your system.
406957 tn?1203000500 Ok its going on 3 weeks now, done the seroquel thing, now I am on the generic for Trileptal-oxcarbazepine. Not feeling this either....I am so angry at the moment and EVERY things getting on my nerves....not to mention I was taking Chantix to quit smoking...then I found out that it contributes to mood swings and anger I stop taking it...but it's not helping.... my question is why am I taking something for epilepsy.... I am ANGRY, i'm not having seizures....
1695384 tn?1306455153 I'm a female in my 60's, diagnosed with Trigemianl Neuralgia about a year ago, and would love to hear from other females with the same problem. Your pain level, medications you take, and anything at all about managing this condition!! After my first episode of Trigeminal Neuralgia, I took Gabapentin 100mg 2x-3x a day for 3 months. The pain gradually got better and I reduced my pills to 1x a day. The pains then went away for 3 months, and I continued with 1 pill each evening.
645390 tn?1338558977 If I understand correctly, you have already stopped some of your medications? Sometimes what happens is that our medications are working so well that we think we don't need them anymore. Then when we do go off them we are surprised to find that the old symptoms and maybe some new ones come back. maybe mention it to your doctor to see if you need to go back on them. Hope that helps.
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 f tn 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!
Avatar f tn 123que double posted this thread and on the twin thread someone comments on it claiming it to be a "simple partial seizure". I've since read up on SPS's and the symptoms are only vaguely similar and seeing as all three of us have the exact same symptoms I doubt it is a simple partial seizure. The symptoms are much to specific to simply be pushed into some vaguely similar preexisting disorder.
Avatar f tn Pharmacologic intervention may improve or eliminate your symptoms, if your symptoms resulted from dental surgical procedures. Possible useful medications include, but not limited to, anticonvulsants,such as gabapentin,lyric, antidepressants, such as,amitryptyline, duolexitin, and many others. Seeing an experienced orofacial pain specialist or neurologist is advised.
