Doctor: Dr. Arun Phophalia, Doctor replied 10 months ago

All of your symptoms; lethargy, restlessness, insomnia, headache are due to adverse effects of the Oxcarbazepine. Please read the resource;

https://www.rxlist.com/trileptal-drug.htm

These symptoms occasionally may slowly resolve.

But many times your doctor may need to stop it if these are significant.

You should contact your doctor.

Please feel free for your follow up questions.

I would be happy to assist you further, if you need any more information.

Thanks for using Just Answer.

Thank you to the Physician who answered my question today. The answer was far more informative than what I got from the Physicians I saw in person for my problem.
