The Tegretol gave me cold sores in my mouth and viral kind of feeling. The Trileptal at the 600mg (just increased dose last night) is making me extremely dizzy and had an episode of stumbling and jerky movements walking strange this morning when I turned fast and got out of the car this morning. (Not driving... still a passenger
) Got very upset at work with all that is happening and keep trying to tell myself it is the meds and others are having a tougher time than me. My question is ... is there a med for this out there that doesn't give you these reactions/side effects so you can lead a somewhat normal life and keep working. I am really down in the dumpers today. Will see my neuro tomorrow morning and in the meantime back on 300mg twice a day which is tolerable. I really appreciate any responses anyone can give.
