Trileptal is used for treating certain types of seizures in patients with epilepsy. It may be used alone or in combination with other medicines. It may also be used for other conditions as determined by your doctor.
Use Trileptal as directed by your doctor.
Trileptal may be taken with or without food.
It is important to take all doses on time to keep the level of medicine in your blood constant. Take doses at evenly spaced intervals. Do not skip doses.
Taking Trileptal at the same times each day will help you to remember to take it.
Continue to take Trileptal even if you feel well. Do not miss any doses. Trileptal works best when there is a constant level of Trileptal in your body.
If Trileptal is stopped, this should be done gradually. The risk of seizures may be increased if Trileptal is suddenly stopped.
Ask your health care provider any questions you may have about how to use Trileptal.

Brief periods at temperatures of 59 to 86 degrees F (15 to 30 degrees C) are permitted. Store away from heat, moisture, and light. Do not store in the bathroom.
