Comment from: Thankful Mom, 25-34 on Treatment for 6 months - 1 year (Patient) Published: November 02

I have been on Trileptal for about seven months now 600mg 2/day. I have never felt better. My mood swings have diminished drastically. My son and I have a better relationship now, because I am not screaming every time he does something wrong. I am more calm and relaxed, like I feel a mother should be. I also take Cymbalta for depression and anxiety. My depression still comes and goes. But at least I am not a freak show anymore. My co-workers have also noticed a change. I don't feel like ripping their heads off when something doesn't go right. Thanks

I have been on Trileptal for eight years for Bipolar I disorder. I love it. I also take Wellbutrin and Lamictal, though I consider Trileptal the stable drug. It is wonderful. I take 1500 mg if I am having a bad episode, but I don't have to stay on that dose for very long usually. I stay at 900 most of the time and it keeps me stable. I really like the ease of use that you can adjust the dosage so easily. Anyway, if you have horrible anxiety, depression, or manic symptoms, this is a great med to take.

I have bi-polar with severe depression, Since taking Trileptal, I feel like I have better control of my emotions and make more appropriate choices when facing a "crisis." In the past, I have attempted suicide many times when confronted with problems or depression, as well as mania--I would drink excessively trying to self medicate instead of asking for assistance. Thank GOD for Trileptal, or I would probably not be alive today!

I use this medcation as a mood stabilizer for bi- polar disorder. I take 1200 mg at night. When I take thid medicine I get a sort of light headed feeling . Enough that I would not think of driving and also why I take at night. I am normally fine by thetime I get up.

This drug made my eyesight kind of blur for the first few months, but my body corrected it. I use this drug for bipolar and anxiety induced seizures, and it's amazing. However, if a single dose is missed, it can cause some very heavy side effects. Overall, i love it.
