pills
« on: December 02, 2013, 11:38:10 PM »
[I took my pills very late on Thanksgiving day and now my anxiety is high. Could this be the cause of my spike in anxiety? I know that my pills should be taken around the same time each day and night but i was very busy and simply forgot. All help is thankfully taken as such. :(

What type of pill and when do you normally take them? Also how long have you been taking them at your current dose?

Did you eat a lot on thanksgiving? Because eating big portions and lots of sugar and fat can also trigger your "system" for a couple of days. In that case you would even feel a little on edge even if you'd taken your pills on time. That's normal. Besides you meds, food can also have an influence on your chemical balance. (You don't want to meet me the day after christmas)

I  am on Paxil and triliptale.

Paxil has a very short half-life so missing or delaying taking it may produce withdrawal effects such as increased anxiety. I need more information on triliptale as I don't know what it is.

Ian, I'm pretty sure this fellow means Oxcarbazepine, marketed as Trileptal by Novartis.

Thanks for the heads-up Steve. I should have thought of that myself.  :dazed:

I'm not convinced that it would be responsible for the increased anxiety. The anticonvulsants aren't that great at easing anxiety, but they don't usually trigger it.

Oxcarbazepine seems to be among the best non-benzo antiepileptics for anxiety. It seems to at least have fewer side effects when compared to the others. I've never encountered anyone on it though, seems pretty rare.
