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.
I only take 150mg 2x a day, my blood pressure has sky rocketed since I have been on this medicine. Generally run 90-100/60’s, yesterday it was 159/84. Pulse was in 90’s and usually it is between 40-50. I know this is low dosage, but I seem to be hypersensitive to many medications
I was on Trileptal for 2 years and my blood pressure went way high and stayed that way until i went off. I took 600mg twice a day. i told my neurologist i thought it was related to the trileptal and he did not agree. When my sodium went too low they took me off. I went for my bi-annual appt last month, and my blood pressure was back to normal. i would say it was related.
