welcome to HealthcareMagic
Oxitol ic oxcarbazepine and is a treatment you need to take for your fit and neurological problem.The main side effect is that if given in pregnancy it can cause teratogenic effects on the baby that is the baby may have birth defects.There is no direct study and so being teratogenic it should be used when the potential benefit is more as compared to the risk.The other side effects that are common in pregnant as wel as non pregnant are headache;nausea;blurring of vision;dizziness;fatigue;tremors etc.So discuss with your Gynaec for better opinion.
