Oxcarbazepine is an anticonvulsant. It works by slowing abnormal nerve impulses in the brain. It is used for treating certain types of seizures in patients with epilepsy. It may be used alone or in combination with other medicines. It may also be used for other conditions as determined by your doctor.

Oxcarbazepine is related chemically to the mood stabilizer carbamazepine, which is FDA-approved for bipolar disorder. Oxcarbazepine does not have as many problems with drug interactions and side effects as carbamazepine.
