My doc let me try the new & improved extended release version of Trileptal. Then, I started having crippling feet problems, swelling, pain and eventually tendonitis.
Turns out, plain old immediate release Trileptal is better for me. The Oxtellar XR I was taking before bed WAS what was causing the painful swelling in my feet. It's a "less severe" side effect - yea right!
Now that I've gone back to the cheap old immediate release Trileptal I don't have that problem and my feet are fine! Yea!
I'm the queen of side effects, and I loved Oxteller XR, but my body was swelling too much overnight (I would take it before bed).
Now I just take my Trileptal during the day and I can walk!
Like I said, side effects queen. :(
Oh, and I'm still taking my same old faithful Geodon & Klonopin. Back to normal. Normal is nice, really nice. No more drug trials for me!
