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!
