Trileptal Medication Info
One of the many prescription drugs available for the treatment of epilepsy is Trileptal® (oxcarbazepine). Specifically, this medication is approved for treating epilepsy in people who experience certain types of seizures called partial seizures (also called focal seizures), which occur in just one part of the brain. Though it can be an effective way of controlling seizures, the medication is not a cure. Trileptal comes in tablet form and is usually taken twice a day.
Before beginning treatment with Trileptal, information on this medication's potential risks should be fully reviewed with your healthcare provider. Also, tell him or her if you have any other medical conditions or are taking any other drugs, including prescription and nonprescription medicines, vitamins, and herbal supplements.
