Plse tell me about Mysoline 250mg tabs?
Asked by Shena Knehans 1 year ago.

Mysoline is a prescription medication used to control seizures....dosing should not exceed 2000mg per day. The most common side effects are vertigo and ataxia (uncoordinated muscular movements)...other sides effects may include nausea, vomiting, fatigue, hyperirritability, emotional disturbances and drowsiness among others. You should not stop this medication without consulting your physician as you would need to taper yourself off the drug slowly to avoid serious side effects. Not sure exactly what kind of info you were looking for but you can check out some of the online drug sites (such as rxlist.com) for more informaiton or talk to your pharmacist or physician if you have specific questions.

Answered by Keren Buzzelli 1 year ago.

No. The drug Mysoline (primidone) is converted by the liver into phenobarbital. Although phenobarbital does take a long time to leave the body, the doses you took were very low and for a short period of time. Had you taken the drug for years or even months, withdrawal symptoms (such as the return of your tremor) would be likely. You did not mention if you're taken any other medication for your tremor; therefore it's hard to say for certain. If you're not taking any other medication, it's rather obvious why tremors have returned. There are other medications that can be prescribed for essential tremor. You need to contact your physician. Hope this helps. Be well. Rick the Pharmacist Answered by Preston Reimmer 1 year ago.


Is anyone on Mysoline and how long does it take to work?
Does the tiredness ever go away, I know it takes weeks to kick in, but I'm so tired, and I mean sooooooooo tired that I'm actuallly not going to appts. with rhe doc. All I want to do is sleep. Anyone out there that has a comment, PLEASE post it. Thank you!! Asked by Porfirio Shockley 1 year ago.

I haven't taken Mysoline, but I have taken other seizure medicine, and I had the same problems. I asked my doctor to take me off the original medicine. FYI: it did get somewhat better as my body got used to the drug, but I hear you- the first few months I was useless. I've actually gotten my medicine scaled way back, and have found some great complementary treatments. - I've heard glyconutrients can help - I love Nikken products. There have been many case studies where they help people with seizures. For more info, click on the link below. Go to products and check out the necklace, sleep system, and insoles (under Rest & Relaxation). All have been shown to help control seizures. Best of luck! I know how crappy you feel right now!

Is there any cure for epilepsy?

They have an implant they can put in your brain. It's still considered a risky surgery though Answered by Ethyl Beliles 1 year ago.

There is a surgery that can be performed that separates your left and right brain. This cures the epilepsy, but the side effects are a little strange. After the surgery, if you close one eye, you won't be able to read, and if you close the other eye, you won't be able to recognize objects. As long as you keep both eyes open, you'll be okay. Ask your doctor about this surgery. It has been around for a while. Answered by Ellis Sibayan 1 year ago.

Hi there I think it is possible for epilepsy medication to stabilise seizures altogether but everybody is different. Different combinationms of drugs work for different people, some may never have seizures again as a result and some may still suffer them. The medication should reduce the frequency of them though. You may be able to be weened off of the tablets totally. Ask your neurologist for advice. Scott Answered by Oliva Peregrino 1 year ago.

I'm a nurse and their isn't a cure for it as of yet. However their are procedures to rid you of medication or using not so much medicine, it requires brain surgery. I would inquire about this to your primary, let him know your concerns. There is always other options but not without risks. I hope this is useful to you, take care. Answered by Fernando Klukken 1 year ago.

It depends on the origin of your seizures. I once was lost to regular szs. but later in my life, mid 30's, a neurologist set me free by brain surgery. My sz. were localized in one area of my brain, and the area was completely taken out, thereby setting my free from regular sz invasion.This is outlined in my book Facing Me. There are also ways to better control sz. as in the vegus nerve stimalator (VNS). This is a wonderful pacemaker like device to be used if surgery is not possible. Talk to your local Epilepsy Foundation and they will assist you greatly. You do not have to be stuck, although some doctors who are not as up-to-date on new techniques to not give this info to their patients. Good luck! and don't give up. There is HOPE.

Okay, so basically... I want to know everything there is to know. I'm getting birth control pills from my doctor on Monday, but I want to have some kind of knowledge when I go there to be consulted. I heard if you take antibiotics while on BC pills or the shot, the BC is no longer effective due to the antibiotics? Is this true? Does this apply towards tylenol, ibuprofen, advil, or cough syrup? I also have heard if you don't take it at the same time every day, its no longer effective, is this true? How effective are BC pills against pregnancy? What are the pros/cons of BC pills? How long should I wait until I have sex if I miss a day (or when I first start taking the pills)? Is the shot more effective than the pills? I heard the shot has a lot of bad side effects, including problems with your ovaries. Is this a problem among many women? I know this is going to sound super stupid, but what exactly does it do? I've heard of it stopping periods overall, and it only stopping ovulation.. which is it? Any other information you find helpful please add. Thanks to everyone in advance. :) Answered by Despina Wimbs 1 year ago.

yes, certain antibiotics can make birth control less effective, these are: the anti-tuberculosis drug, rifampin (Rifadin) and certain anticonvulsants/anti-seizure medications such as Tegretol, Dilantin, Mysoline, phenobarbital, and the anti-fungal medication griseofulvin. so no, tylenol, ibuprofen, advil, and cough syrup do not affect it. if you don't take it at the same time every day, it is less effective, but things like the patch, the ring, and the shot. you don't have to worry about the time of day on those. if taken correctly every day the pill is 99.7% effective, if it is not always taken correctly it is only about 92% effective pros- help regulate you period, prevents pregnancy, helps with acne cons- has been associated with weight gain, however, most side effects go away with in 2-3 months if you miss a day, but take the pill with in 24 hours, then you do not need back up protection. check the information that comes with the birth control, it'll tell you for sure, but that's the general rule. you should wait at least 7 days after starting the pill, or missing more than two pills to have sex without back up contraception the shot would only be more effective that the pill if you have trouble forgetting to take the pill every day most women have no problems adjusting to birth control, but all hormonal birth control has side effects, and the risk for experiencing them depends on your medical history. the shot sometimes has more side effects than the pill, another big problem with the shot is the fact that if you react badly to the hormones, you can't stop taking it. you're stuck with the problems for several months the pill stops ovulation, however, you can skip the sugar pills in a pack and immediately start a new pack, this will stop your "period," also, you can't have a real period while on birth control because you do not ovulate, what you do experience is withdrawal bleeding on the week you take the sugar pill note: all this information is for combination pills, the info for progestone only pills is slightly different ALSO: the effectiveness of the pill does NOT decrease the longer you take it Answered by Cinda Stettler 1 year ago.

If you take antibiotics, NO BC is not effective, so you would have to wear a condom while on the medicine. No it doesn't apply to ibuprofen tylenol or advil, i'm not sure about the cough medicine. As long as you take it everyday and never miss a pill, it is 99.9% effective. I've asked my doctor. Just don't miss any or you will most likely get preggers. 99.9% effective. The pro's is that it lightens your period. & you get it almost the same time every month. Like me, i get mine every tuesday every 28 days. The cons, it could cause weight gain, and it could make you not feel good at first. Wait a month, after you start taking them, that way you know that they're in your system. I know nothing about the shot. The pill has been very effective for me. i also heard that if you take the pill to long then its possible you can't have kids. but once you meet someone you love it shouldn't matter if you get pregnant or not, so when you find that one person just stop taking it, i guess? i dont know? The pill is great for me. and it helps alot with cramps, i don't really get them as bad anymore. you just got to try it for yourself and find out because everyones body is different. so good luck! i hope i was helpful! Answered by Maura Depedro 1 year ago.

1. Yes, antibiotics will make your BC less effective, so be really careful and use back up BC like condoms. THis does not apply to any over the counter drugs, however some herbal supplements such as St John's Wort, and Vitex, can make your BC less effective, so check with your doctor before taking any herbal supplements. 2. Ask your doctor to make sure, but im pretty sure that that is not true. in fact with many birth control pills you can safely miss one day and still dont have to worry about getting pregnant. 3. about 99.2%, depending on which specific pill, they are all over 99% though Pros: if you take them correctly you wont get pregnant! :D they can regulate your period or make your period lighter, with less symptoms. some pills help with acne! :D Cons: if you forget to take your pill a bunch, or are on antibiotics and dont use back up birth control you can still get prengate. you should still use a condom to avoid stds. BC messes with your hormones, so different people have different side effects and different amounts of side effects. you may have to try a few different brands of BC pills before you find one that works for you. when i started taking BC i took aviane, and it made me really depressed for about a month until i switched. obviously that's not typical but be on the look out for other side effects and don't be afraid to switch pills Depending on your pill, it will probably still be effective if you only miss one day (talk with your doctor to make sure though and read the information that come with your prescription) however when you start your bc, it should be effective within a week, so if you do miss a pill you should be good again after a week the shot is also very effective, in a year 3% of women who used the shot got pregnant. so about 97% effectiveness not quite sure about the rest of your questions about the shot D: i googled it and it sounds like its a shot you get every three months with a hormone that prevents you from ovulating. Answered by Shona Lukens 1 year 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 Asley Hulcy 1 year 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 Genia Buttaccio 1 year 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 Stevie Stmichel 1 year ago.

I agree with what was said above, Trileptal has the least side-effects. Answered by Jared Cortinez 1 year ago.

i think lamotrigine(lamictal) is the best having minimal side effects in the form of rash but u should statr ttt in a small dose 25 mgm for two weks then raise gradually . anyhow u should consult a neuropsychiatrist. Answered by Shalonda Zanardi 1 year ago.

BC messes with your hormones, so different people have different side effects and different amounts of side effects. you may have to try a few different brands of BC pills before you find one that works for you. when i started taking BC i took aviane, and it made me really depressed for about a month until i switched. obviously that's not typical but be on the look out for other side effects and don't be afraid to switch pills Depending on your pill, it will probably still be effective if you only miss one day (talk with your doctor to make sure though and read the information that come with your prescription) however when you start your bc, it should be effective within a week, so if you do miss a pill you should be good again after a week the shot is also very effective, in a year 3% of women who used the shot got pregnant. so about 97% effectiveness not quite sure about the rest of your questions about the shot D: i googled it and it sounds like its a shot you get every three months with a hormone that prevents you from ovulating.

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 Sophia Rando 1 year 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 Charley Grunder 1 year 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 Lauren Langill 1 year ago.

I agree with what was said above, Trileptal has the least side-effects. Answered by Kaitlyn Twigg 1 year ago.

Plse tell me about Mysoline 250mg tabs?
Asked by Brigida Appel 1 year ago.

Mysoline is a prescription medication used to control seizures....dosing should not exceed 2000mg per day. The most common side effects are vertigo and ataxia (uncoordinated muscular movements)...other sides effects may include nausea, vomiting, fatigue, hyperirritability, emotional disturbances and drowsiness among others. You should not stop this medication without consulting your physician as you would need to taper yourself off the drug slowly to avoid serious side effects. Not sure exactly what kind of info you were looking for but you can check out some of the online drug sites (such as rxlist.com) for more informaiton or talk to your pharmacist or physician if you have specific questions.

Answered by Ocie Radebaugh 1 year ago.

No. The drug Mysoline (primidone) is converted by the liver into phenobarbital. Although phenobarbital does take a long time to leave the body, the doses you took were very low and for a short period of time. Had you taken the drug for years or even months, withdrawal symptoms (such as the return of your tremor) would be likely. You did not mention if you're taken any other medication for your tremor; therefore it's hard to say for certain. If you're not taking any other medication, it's rather obvious why tremors have returned. There are other medications that can be prescribed for essential tremor. You need to contact your physician. Hope this helps. Be well. Rick the Pharmacist Answered by Corine Fasci 1 year ago.


Is anyone on Mysoline and how long does it take to work?
Does the tiredness ever go away, I know it takes weeks to kick in, but I'm so tired, and I mean sooooooooo tired that I'm actuallly not going to appts. with rhe doc. All I want to do is sleep. Anyone out there that has a comment, PLEASE post it. Thank you!! Asked by Danica Endito 1 year ago.

I haven't taken Mysoline, but I have taken other seizure medicine, and I had the same problems. I asked my doctor to take me off the original medicine. FYI: it did get somewhat better as my body got used to the drug, but I hear you- the first few months I was useless. I've actually gotten my medicine scaled way back, and have found some great complementary treatments. - I've heard glyconutrients can help - I love Nikken products. There have been many case studies where they help people with seizures. For more info, click on the link below. Go to products and check out the necklace, sleep system, and insoles (under Rest & Relaxation). All have been shown to help control seizures. Best of luck! I know how crappy you feel right now!

Effectiveness of propranolol/mysoline?

Is there any cure for epilepsy?

They have an implant they can put in your brain. It's still considered a risky surgery though Answered by Marcelino Mathur 1 year ago.

There is a surgery that can be performed that separates your left and right brain. This cures the epilepsy, but the side effects are a little strange. After the surgery, if you close one eye, you won't be able to read, and if you close the other eye, you won't be able to recognize objects. As long as you keep both eyes open, you'll be okay. Ask your doctor about this surgery. It has been around for a while. Answered by Zoraida Rosenblum 1 year ago.

Hi there I think it is possible for epilepsy medication to stabilise seizures altogether but everybody is different. Different combinationms of drugs work for different people, some may never have seizures again as a result and some may still suffer them. The medication should reduce the frequency of them though. You may be able to be weened off of the tablets totally. Ask your neurologist for advice. Scott Answered by Teddy Gandara 1 year ago.

I'm a nurse and their isn't a cure for it as of yet. However their are procedures to rid you of medication or using not so much medicine, it requires brain surgery. I would inquire about this to your primary, let him know your concerns. There is always other options but not without risks. I hope this is useful to you, take care. Answered by Terica Ewens 1 year ago.

It depends on the origin of your seizures. I once was lost to regular szs. but later in my life, mid 30's, a neurologist set me free by brain surgery. My sz. were localized in one area of my brain, and the area was completely taken out, thereby setting my free from regular sz invasion.This is outlined in my book Facing Me. There are also ways to better control sz. as in the vegus nerve stimalator (VNS). This is a wonderful pacemaker like device to be used if surgery is not possible. Talk to your local Epilepsy Foundation and they will assist you greatly. You do not have to be stuck, although some doctors who are not as up-to-date on new techniques to not give this info to their patients. Good luck! and don't give up. There is HOPE.

Okay, so basically... I want to know everything there is to know. I'm getting birth control pills from my doctor on Monday, but I want to have some kind of knowledge when I go there to be consulted. I heard if you take antibiotics while on BC pills or the shot, the BC is no longer effective due to the antibiotics? Is this true? Does this apply towards tylenol, ibuprofen, advil, or cough syrup? I also have heard if you don't take it at the same time every day, its no longer effective, is this true? How effective are BC pills against pregnancy? What are the pros/cons of BC pills? How long should I wait until I have sex if I miss a day (or when I first start taking the pills)? Is the shot more effective than the pills? I heard the shot has a lot of bad side effects, including problems with your ovaries. Is this a problem among many women? I know this is going to sound super stupid, but what exactly does it do? I've heard of it stopping periods overall, and it only stopping ovulation.. which is it? Any other information you find helpful please add. Thanks to everyone in advance. :) Answered by Treena Ngov 1 year ago.

yes, certain antibiotics can make birth control less effective, these are: the anti-tuberculosis drug, rifampin (Rifadin) and certain anticonvulsants/anti-seizure medications such as Tegretol, Dilantin, Mysoline, phenobarbital, and the anti-fungal medication griseofulvin. so no, tylenol, ibuprofen, advil, and cough syrup do not affect it. if you don't take it at the same time every day, it is less effective, but things like the patch, the ring, and the shot. you don't have to worry about the time of day on those. if taken correctly every day the pill is 99.7% effective, if it is not always taken correctly it is only about 92% effective pros- help regulate you period, prevents pregnancy, helps with acne cons- has been associated with weight gain, however, most side effects go away with in 2-3 months if you miss a day, but take the pill with in 24 hours, then you do not need back up protection. check the information that comes with the birth control, it'll tell you for sure, but that's the general rule. you should wait at least 7 days after starting the pill, or missing more than two pills to have sex without back up contraception the shot would only be more effective that the pill if you have trouble forgetting to take the pill every day most women have no problems adjusting to birth control, but all hormonal birth control has side effects, and the risk for experiencing them depends on your medical history. the shot sometimes has more side effects than the pill, another big problem with the shot is the fact that if you react badly to the hormones, you can't stop taking it. you're stuck with the problems for several months the pill stops ovulation, however, you can skip the sugar pills in a pack and immediately start a new pack, this will stop your "period," also, you can't have a real period while on birth control because you do not ovulate, what you do experience is withdrawal bleeding on the week you take the sugar pill note: all this information is for combination pills, the info for progestone only pills is slightly different ALSO: the effectiveness of the pill does NOT decrease the longer you take it Answered by Augusta Grunlien 1 year ago.

If you take antibiotics, NO BC is not effective, so you would have to wear a condom while on the medicine. No it doesn't apply to ibuprofen tylenol or advil, i'm not sure about the cough medicine. As long as you take it everyday and never miss a pill, it is 99.9% effective. I've asked my doctor. Just don't miss any or you will most likely get preggers. 99.9% effective. The pro's is that it lightens your period. & you get it almost the same time every month. Like me, i get mine every tuesday every 28 days. The cons, it could cause weight gain, and it could make you not feel good at first. Wait a month, after you start taking them, that way you know that they're in your system. I know nothing about the shot. The pill has been very effective for me. i also heard that if you take the pill to long then its possible you can't have kids. but once you meet someone you love it shouldn't matter if you get pregnant or not, so when you find that one person just stop taking it, i guess? i dont know? The pill is great for me. and it helps alot with cramps, i don't really get them as bad anymore. you just got to try it for yourself and find out because everyones body is different. so good luck! i hope i was helpful!
