Chloe, I know this is kind of like getting painted into a corner and stepping your way out of it. I have also been on Celexa, too. I quit it completely just a few days ago. The Celexa could be the culprit, but I also retried Trileptal a few days ago (as an add-on)and just a few days of it and I noticed an increased agitation and my thoughts seemed "louder"-I stopped it-ain't takin' it again. It would be tough to switch back to Tegretol just like that for you.
How about this:
The last thing you did was add the Celexa. You have got to retrace your steps backward.... You said this was the first time you experienced hypomania on an AD right? Well, question one is: Is this the first time that you have tried Celexa? IF SO,
then stop the Celexa and just take the Trileptal or if you were taking a *different* AD before the Celexa-go back on that one and see if you see all of this turbulence subside. If after doing that it doesn't help-I would suggest switching back to the Tegretol and then go from *there*.

> I never even consider that Trileptal could be a culprit. I switched from Tegretol to Trileptal about two months ago, when I was not on any AD. When I added Celexa about a three weeks ago, I had my first hypomanic reaction to an AD. So you may be on to something...Now my wheel are turning.
> Perhaps, the Trileptal isn't the best mood stabilizer for me to be on. My mood has been all over the map the last few days. From unable to move and depressed, to bursting with excitement all in one day. It is becoming quite debilitating.
> Thanks alot Mitch.
