How much weight will I lose on Felbatol?
I started taking a new seizure medication, March 13th, 2012. About last week my neighbor asked me if I had lost weight, then my family was telling me that I looked smaller. But, when I look in the mirror I don't see it. Does anyone know how much weight I could possibly lose, and when I will start to notice?...

“A table, a chair, a bowl of fruit and a violin; what else does a man need to be happy?” Albert Einstein The Einstein Diet... Lemon water, with the lemons coming from freshly squeezed lemons, which will help detox the body of excess fat and toxins. A variety of raw high carb/low fat fruit (do not juice or blend, because chewing properly is important for digestion due to amylase). Must have green grapes and ambrosia apples 24/7. Other Information... Vegetables/legumes are 2nd best, but may be needed due to finance or type 1 diabetes, in which case, I'd suggest getting a variety of salad recipes. Sprouted grains are 3rd best, but may be needed due to finance. *No meat and no cheese is a must, but if a person has trouble with not eating meat: shrimp/prawns, lobster & crab are the easiest meats to digest. *Proper sleep, hydration, fresh air 24/7, eating sufficient carbs, and cardio (at least walking) is a must.

Topiramate is used alone or with other medications to treat certain types of seizures in people who have epilepsy. Topiramate is also used with other medications to control seizures in people who have Lennox-Gastaut syndrome (a severe form of epilepsy that begins during childhood and causes several types of seizures, behavioral disturbances, and developmental delays). Topiramate is used to treat patients who continue to have seizures even when they take other anti-seizure medications. Topiramate is also used to prevent migraine headaches, but not to relieve the pain of migraine headaches when they occur. Topiramate is in a class of medications called anticonvulsants. It works by decreasing abnormal excitement in the brain. Preliminary data suggests that, as with several other anti-epileptic drugs, topiramate carries an increased risk of congenital malformations. This might be particularly important for women who take topiramate to prevent migraine attacks. Valproic acid is used alone or with other medications to treat certain types of seizures. Valproic acid is also used to treat mania (episodes of frenzied, abnormally excited mood) in people with bipolar disorder (manic-depressive disorder; a disease that causes episodes of depression, episodes of mania, and other abnormal moods). It is also used to prevent migraine headaches, but not to relieve headaches that have already begun. Valproic acid is in a class of medications called anticonvulsants. It works by increasing the amount of a certain natural substance in the brain. The most severe side effects are ten times higher-than-average incidence rates of serious, irreversible birth defects (teratogenic) such as births of brainless babies (anencephaly). Felbamate is used to treat certain seizures in adults and children with epilepsy whose seizures have not improved with other treatments. It is used alone or in combination with other medications to treat partial seizures in adults. It is used in combination with other medications to treat partial and generalized seizures in children with Lennox-Gastaut syndrome (a severe form of epilepsy that begins during childhood and causes several types of seizures, behavioral disturbances, and developmental delays). Felbamate is in a class of medications called anticonvulsants. It works by decreasing abnormal activity in the brain. Please see the web pages for more details on Topiramate (generic name) Topamax (brand name), Valproate semisodium (generic name) Depakote (brand name), Felbamate (generic name) Felbatol (brand name).

drugs do not just naturally occur in your body without your having ingested them, so someone gave it to you if you didn't take it. if you never take drugs why are they drug testing you? drug tests are not a normal part of urinalysis Answered by Ezra Dancey 2 years ago.
If you haven't taken them someone has slipped them to you. Your baby will be fine probably. There's always the chance that the doctor swapped test results by mistake. Congrats on your baby!!! Answered by Sonny Peteet 2 years ago.
I recently started taking a new Epilepsy medication?
and I guess a better question to ask is "Is there anything I can take OTC or something I can do to relieve it?"It's pretty impossible to be getting up to go to the restroom to...you know... every hour on the hour. It's quite disgusting if you ask me :/ I'm not used to this feeling either,...

I recently started taking Felbatol for my Epilepsy (Temporal and Occipital) and I am experiencing Hypersexuality... it's very extreme and annoying to be quite frank. I've tried cold showers and whatnot but it comes back throughout the day. This has never happened to me, and to be honest I'm usually not very interested in sex at all which was a big problem for a while. Is this normal? What can I do to stop it?

All you can really do is let your treating Doctor's know about this side effect. They can then decide to adjust your medication or change it altogether. If the medication is working well, and your having a good response, you may just need to put up with this side effect. Or their maybe something they can give you. Antidepressants lower your libido. I am not sure if your a guy or girl. You don't say. If your a bloke, keep having the cold showers and relieving yourself whilst in there. If your a woman, then it makes it a bit more difficult. You may need to go on the Pill or take some hormones. Let your Doctor's know as soon as you can. Answered by Nilsa Serrao 2 years ago.
Which Anti-cunvulsant drug is known to have the least amount of side effects between:?
Acetazolamide (Diamox®) Carbamazepine (Carbatrol®, Tegretol®) Felbamate (Felbatol®) Levetiracetam (Keppra®) Oxcarbazepine (Trileptal®) Primidone (Mysoline®) Topiramate (Topamax®) Valproic acid (Depakene®, Depakote®) Zonisamide (Zonegran®)
Asked by Micki Orange 2 years ago.
Of Tegretol, Keppra, Trileptal, Topamax, and Depakote, Trileptal has the rep for lowest side effects. That's an average. It made me sick the first day and I was off it in three. Depakote can be rough, cause weight gain, and mess with female hormones. Keppra can cause depression. Topamax can be magic for migraine and TLE but it can also cause real memory and word recall problems. Haven't taken Tegretol, but it's "big brother" to Trileptal. These are the bipolar anticonvulsants which is why I have some knowledge about them and not the others. Lots of ppl don't get these side effects, but lots do. Whichever med works best for your epilepsy with the least side effects will be the best med for you. Unfortunately, you're not going to know which one it is until you try. Best bet is to start with what you neuro recommends and then take it from there. Answered by Ellan Sledge 2 years ago.
I used to take trileptal when I was on medication. It worked just fine and I didn't notice many, if any side effects. Although, at the time there was no generic so it was very expensive. I hope there's a generic by now or within the near future! Answered by Brendan Larrimore 2 years ago.
I agree with what was said above, Trileptal has the least side-effects. Answered by Svetlana Konderla 2 years ago.

Two drugs -- valproate (Depakote) and felbamate (Felbatol) -- can even increase hormonal levels. If you are on one of these drugs, your doctor may need to adjust the dosage of your birth control so that you don't have too much of the contraceptive in your body.
