What was Trileptal prescribed for?
Trileptal is an anticonvulsant medication that is used for seizures and in MS it can be helpful for pain. Many medications are used "off label" for MS. There are very few medication that are FDA approved specifically for MS.
I used Trileptal for pain,, I don't deal with seizures. I thought I was noticing a difference in my pain after about a week and was starting to increase the dosage. It was about 2 more weeks before I became suicidal...medication induced. Needless to say I stopped Trileptal cold turkey which is not recommend, but I felt my safety was more important.
Although that was my experience it doesn't mean it will be yours but it is important to understand and research medication side effects.
I hope Trileptal helps
