> I read a lot about the lesser sedation on higher doses of Remeron (Mirtazapine). I think its more theoretical (increasing Noradrenaline) because my pdoc started to patients on 30 mg at night and they were knocked out for two days ! I know that not all do agree with this but thats why we react all different.

We sure do. It is true that a lot of people (not everyone) find that the sedation decreases as they increase the dose, so it's not just theoretical. That doesn't mean that everyone will experience this. Also, 30 mg is a middle-range dose of Remeron, and it's quite possible that someone who finds 30 to be oversedating will be less sedated on 45 (for example).

> How much Trileptal is considered to treat pain and often do you have to take it ?

Unlike Tegretol, this relatively new drug isn't labelled for any pain syndromes. For epilepsy, I think the recommended daily dose range for adults is 1200-2400 mg; the dose is probably similar for pain. It's taken in two divided doses per day.

> Could it be a good mood stabilizer for unipolars ?

I'm not sure what you mean by "mood stabilizer for unipolars." Can you say more about this?
