Advice & Tips
Ever since I started taking Trileptal, its been an interesting experience. It has tamed my seizures somewhat, but not on its own. The side effects can be annoying sometimes, and has lowered by blood sodium several times (gotta be careful for that!)
Beware of drowsiness and possible weight gain!
Unless I take this on a very full stomach it makes me very sleepy so I recommend eating a very large breakfast before taking it in the mornings. However, I take twice as much at night and cannot sleep, I don't understand that. Either way if you are taking this medication in the morning there is a good chance it is going to make you want to go back to bed.
