Not to discourage you -- as we all know, everbody's different -- but I gained a good bit of weight on tegretol. It also made me unable to do simple arithmetic and once to drive off the road. Trileptol, which is similar to tegretol, is not supposed to be so bad. And if you want weight loss with your mood stabilization ask about topamax. Lost all the weight the ones before it put on me.
