Oxcarbazepine (Trileptal) has become unbearable for me with the adverse effects I've been experiencing, so my neurologist recommended Aptiom. I read that it's possible to make an overnight switch between these two drugs. Has anyone here tried this? I am very interested (desperate actually) to hear of people experiences with these two drugs. After experiencing the horrible withdrawal symptoms of Oxcarbazepine I'm actually terrified to make the switch. The last time I tried to gradually switch from Oxcarbazepine to another drug (Lamictal) I wound up in the emergency room suffering from horrible, unrelenting panic attacks. Is there anyone out there that can ease my fears?
