Trileptal suspension is a liquid anticonvulsant medicine that is prescribed to treat partial seizures in epileptic patients. The generic medicinal ingredient is oxcarbazepine.
Doctors prescribe Trileptal to children or adults with epilepsy to prevent excessive electrical activity in the brain, thereby preventing seizures.
Trileptal works by preventing sodium ions from entering nerve cells in the brain when they begin to fire abnormally with repetitive electrical signals. In this way, Trileptal stabilizes the electrical activity in the brain and helps to prevent seizures.
Before using Trileptal suspension, shake the bottle for at least ten seconds. Withdraw the prescribed amount using the syringe. You can swallow the medicine directly from the syringe or you can drink it mixed with a little water. Afterwards, rinse the syringe and let dry. The usual starting dose for adults is 5ml of Trileptal suspension taken orally twice daily with or without food. For children, the doctor will calculate the dosage depending on the child’s weight.
These may not be all the side effects of Trileptal suspension 60mg/ml.
Do not take this medication if you have a hypersensitivity to any of the ingredients. You should not take Trileptal suspension if you have a fructose intolerance (severe abdominal pain, vomiting, and hypoglycemia after you eat fruit).
Prior to taking this medication, tell your doctor if you have heart disease, low sodium levels in the blood, liver disease or kidney disease. Avoid consuming alcohol as much as possible while taking this medication. Tell your doctor if you are taking diuretics before starting treatment with Trileptal.
Trileptal suspension should be stored at room temperature (15°C to 30°C). Use this medication within seven weeks after first opening the bottle.
Epilepsy is a neurological disorder characterized by sudden and recurrent seizures. 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 called tonic-clonic seizures (grand mal) and absence seizures (petit mal). Partial seizures are focused in just one part of the brain but may spread to the whole brain and cause a generalized tonic-clonic (grand mal) seizure. There are two types of partial seizures. In simple partial seizures, the patient remains conscious and in complex partial seizures, patients lose consciousness. Symptoms of a partial seizure may include muscle contractions, repetitive movements, dilated pupils and a rapid heart rate. Seizures can usually be effectively controlled with medication as well as lifestyle changes, such as plenty of sleep, healthy diet, exercise and limiting stress.
