Re: How long until Trileptal sleepiness goes away? MB

> I'm taking Trileptal 300mg/day and will be working up to 450mg day. I'm tolorating it a lot better than the Gabitril that I tried a couple of weeks ago, but I'm noticing that the Trileptal is making me sleepy and sometimes spacy. Can anyone with experience with this drug tell me how long these side effects take to go away (if they do go away)?

You're feeling tired on Trileptal? Jeez, I'd say you're lucky -- I'd love it if this stuff helped me sleep. What are you taking it for, and do you find it helpful?

Unfortunately, I can't answer your question. I'm taking 600 mg of Trileptal and haven't noticed any side effects. I wonder if you could take it just once a day (at bedtime) and if so, whether that would help with the drowsiness. When are you taking it, and how much? (I take 300 in the morning and 300 at bedtime.)

Good luck to you.
