til I notice the full effects of it? I am taking it for mild Bipolar Disorder/depression along with 150mgs of Wellbutrin a day. Tonight (when I'm done sending this question) I start 150mgs a nite for 3 nites, then 150mgs morning & 150mgs at nite.
The Trileptal should take a week of two before you feel the full effect. I did not have luck with Trileptal. It did not help with the mood swings. But, it is one of the medications that has less side effects. I hope it all works out for you. Good luck!
This is info I researched. Short and sweet. I like that. Don't you?
How long does it take for Oxcarbazepine to work?
It is very important to tell your doctor how you feel during the first few weeks after you start taking oxcarbazepine (trileptal.) It will probably take several weeks to see big enough changes in your symptoms to decide if oxcarbazepine is the right medication for you.
How long does it take for Wellbutrin® to work?
While depressed mood and lack of interest in activities may need up to 4-6 weeks to improve, disturbances in sleep, energy, or appetite may show some improvement within the first 1-2 weeks. Improvement in these physical symptoms can be an important early signal that the medication is working.
Ya know, Lady, a lot of medications say it will take weeks to feel any changes. Do you think that's true? It hasn't been my experience and I'm 63. I always feel a new med in a day or so. I'm self aware of the changes. We're all different. Let me know how it works, plz. I wish I could help more. I was unable to find any more info. In some other chat boards people said it wasn't a good combination. I don't know. Have you spoke with your doc about how long it will take?
God bless you,
