Trileptal oral (Oxcarbazepine) is a medication used to treat seizure disorders (epilepsy).

Trileptal is effective in treating focal or partial seizures in adults and children aged 6 to 17 years. It can be used alone or with other medications for this purpose.

It is also used with other seizure medicines for focal seizures in children aged 2 to 15 years.

The dose of Trileptal used in children is based on their weight.

In addition to epilepsy, Trileptal may be used off-label as a mood stabilizer for the treatment of bipolar disorder.


  • Follow the healthcare provider's instructions: Take Trileptal exactly as prescribed by your healthcare provider. This includes dosage, frequency, and duration of treatment.
  • Shake well: Shake the Trileptal suspension thoroughly before each use to ensure an even distribution of medication.
  • Use measuring device: Use the provided measuring device or a calibrated medication spoon to ensure accurate dosage.
  • Take with or without food: Trileptal can be taken with or without food, depending on your healthcare provider's instructions and how it affects your stomach.
