My sodium level is very low but my blood pressure is very high. I take the medication for seizures and i think I'm going to have to change the medication.
Common (1% to 10%): Chest pain, generalized edema, hot flushes, hypotension, leg edema
Very rare (less than 0.01%): Arrhythmia, atrioventricular block, hypertension
Frequency not reported: Bradycardia, cardiac failure, cerebral hemorrhage, palpitation, postural hypotension, precordial chest pain, tachycardia.
My BP went higher than normal for a few months after I started taking Oxcarbazepine but it mostly leveled out normal after that. I was on a fair low dose low of 600mg two times a day. My medicine was recently increased a little to see if it helps more with my seizures so will see if that makes a difference but hoping it wont make a difference in BP.
