General Satisfaction score :
Treato analyzes billions of patient discussions to understand what patients are saying about their experience with regard to their treatments, diseases and side effects. Treato algorithmically identifies patients' positive experiences about medications within their Web posts, for example acne that cleared up, high blood pressure that was reduced, a certain drug that "worked", and so forth. Treato aggregates all of these discussions to calculate how many positive patient posts each medication received, relative to other drugs. Note that positive patient posts about medications are always aggregated in relation to a specific condition, since the same medication may be used for more than one condition.

Trileptal and brain fogginess and forgetfulness
I was prescribed Trileptal ( actually taking the generic ) for what my pdoc calls a " mood disorder". I don't have an official diagnosis yet. Not sure if I had hypo mania but have had some very unusually bad depression in the past year that didn't respond to SSRI's. Also I was tried on brintellix which caused my mind to race, bad insomnia and extreme irritability. Anyway, I can't seem to get on top of the brain fogginess and memory issues with the new med ( oxcabazepine) although mood wise I do feel better. I take 300 msg at night is about all I can handle. Is this fogginess normal?
