Oxcarbazepine is a generic medication that doctors prescribe to treat partial seizures in patients with epilepsy. The brand name of this medication is Trileptal, marketed by Novartis Pharmaceuticals.
Doctors prescribe Oxcarbazepine to help reduce the occurrence of partial seizures in patients with epilepsy. Partial seizures are characterized by uncontrollable muscle movements and can be simple or complex. In simple partial seizures, the patient remains conscious, whereas in complex partial seizures, patients lose consciousness.
Oxcarbazepine is thought to work by controlling the brain’s nerve cells which may help to suppress or reduce the frequency of such seizures.
You should take Oxcarbazepine twice per day at about the same time each day. The usual starting dose for adults is 600mg daily, taken orally, with or without food. Your doctor will calculate the correct dosage for children based on their body.
These may not be all the side effects of Oxcarbazepine 150mg.
Do not take this medication if you are allergic to Oxcarbazepine or any of the ingredients in this tablet.
Talk to your doctor if you have heart disease, low sodium levels in the blood, kidney disease, or serious liver disease before taking this medication. You should also speak to your doctor if you are taking diuretics.
The tablets should be stored at room temperature (15°C to 30°C).
Epilepsy is a brain disorder characterized by recurring seizures and convulsions. Seizures occur because there is an abnormal surge in the brain’s electrical activity. In epilepsy, brain cells send out too many disorderly signals, which may result in uncontrolled movements of muscles that we call an epileptic seizure. There are two main classes of epileptic seizures, generalized and partial. Generalized seizures involve a wide area of the brain, cause loss of consciousness and can affect the whole body. There are two main types of generalized seizures: tonic-clonic seizures (grand mal) and absence seizures (petit mal). Partial seizures involve a limited area of the brain, but may spread to the whole brain and may cause a generalized tonic-clonic (grand mal) seizure.
