Trileptal oral suspension is an antiepileptic drug indicated for the treatment of partial seizures with or without secondarily generalized tonic-clonic seizures. It can be prescribed alone or with other medications to treat seizure disorders (epilepsy). 

Trileptal oral suspension contains the active ingredient oxcarbazepine, converted in the body to its active form, known as monohydroxy derivative (MHD). MHD is believed to inhibit voltage-gated sodium channels, which are involved in the transmission of electrical impulses in the brain. By blocking these channels, Trileptal helps to prevent excessive and abnormal electrical activity that can lead to seizures. 

Use and Dosage 

Trileptal oral suspension can be taken by mouth with or without food as directed by your doctor, usually twice daily. Follow your healthcare provider’s instructions regarding whether to take it with meals. Pour the measured dose of Trileptal oral suspension into a glass or directly into the mouth. If using a glass, drink the entire contents. If taking it directly, swallow the medication without chewing.  

Before each use, shake the bottle well to ensure proper mixing of the medication. Use a calibrated measuring device or an oral syringe provided with the medication to accurately measure the prescribed dose. Do not use a regular household teaspoon as it may not provide the correct dosage. 

The specific dosage of the suspension will depend on factors such as the patient’s age, weight, and individual response to the medication. Follow the dosing instructions provided by the healthcare provider. 

Do not stop taking it without consulting your doctor. Some conditions (such as seizures) may become worse when the drug is suddenly stopped. Your dose may need to be gradually decreased. It should be stored at room temperature, away from light and moisture. It should be kept out of the reach of children.
