    SHIM takes it here because shim was prescribed it. Sleepy yes, recreationally, well it's used to treat bipolar disorder mainly (oh, and cutting behaviors) so tell your friend he's full of it.

    Re: Oxcarbazepine

    Oxcarbazepine is an antiepileptic/mood stabliser.

    Chemical name: 10,11-Dihydro-10-oxo-5H-dibenz[b,f]azepine- 5-carboxamide, structure attached.

    It's an inhibitor of CYP3A4/5 (resulting in lower plasma concentrations of various drugs, including the oral contraceptive pill) and CYP2C19, and, in clinical trials in adults 23% of people stopped taking it because of adverse effects!

    Main adverse effects:

    Dizziness, Nausea, somnolence, diplopia, ataxia, tremor and fatigue

    Almost 3% of patients develop a hyponatraemia, and (as with any drug) there is a risk of hypersensitivity reactions: 35% of people who are allergic to Carbamazepine will also be sensitive to Oxacarbazepine

    All in all, doesn't really sound terribly recreational
