> hello, chemist here....why is your doctor interested in liver enzyme function in re: trileptal? the sodium balance is something to watch, but trileptal is metabolized hepatically by aryl ketone reductase, thus avoiding the 10,11-epoxide intermediate that is produced with tegretol, and the monohydroxy derivative - which is the active metabolite from either drug - is yielded. you should not need liver function tests if you are taking trileptal....all the best, chemist


hi, chemist. my doctor wasn't. the liver panels were routine, and I encourage them for those under the trend of polypharmacy. Even if you take a purportedly safe drug I think it's good to keep an eye on what you can especially if you can afford to do so. Consider this: Serzone.
