I was on Trileptal for bipolar issues. It gave me a horrible rash. Is there anything I can do to help get rid of it?
Hi my name is XXXXX XXXXX X'XX be helping you today.
My advice is to go to your psychiatrist and ask him/her what should you do. Usually with Trileptal there are some people that could get a mild rash the first weeks of usage. It all depends on how strong this rash is. From what you described, yours was horrible. So, I believe if you go to your psychiatrist (if you don't have one and this medication has been prescribed by another doctor you SHOULD get a psychiatrist to evaluate you). There are MANY other medicines for Bipolar issues. These are:
[[Carbamazepine]] - Biston, Calepsin, Carbatrol, Epitol, Equetro, Finlepsin, Sirtal, Stazepine, Tegretol, Telesmin, Timonil.[[Gabapentin]] - Neurontin[[Lamotrigine]] - Lamictal[[Levetiracetam]] - Keppra[[Lithium (medication)|Lithium salts]] - Camcolit, Eskalith, Lithobid, Sedalit[[Oxcarbazepine]] - Trileptal[[Topiramate]] - Topamax[[Sodium valproate]] (valproic acid sodium salt) - Convulex, Depakene, Depakine Enteric, Orfiril, Stavzor[[Valproate semisodium]] or divalproex sodium (sodium valproate ''and'' [[valproic acid]] in 1:1 ratio) || Depakote, Epival, Ergenyl Chrono
You could talk to your psychiatrist to see if you can try any one of these instead. IF YOU HAVE ANY OTHER QUESTIONS PLEASE DO NOT RATE ME UNTIL YOU FEEL SATISFIED WITH THE ANSWER. THANK YOU SO MUCH.
If you are SATISFIED with the answer, please RATE me. Thank you.
Ok. I will call Monday. They are out today so I was just trying to get an answer. Thank you
