Hi Eden,

I started Trileptal two weeks ago and currently take a total of 600mg. per day. The instructions were 150 4x per day. I am beginning to think your twice per day dose might be a better idea. I have TRD (probably Bipolar) and the Trileptal has helped but I have to see my pdoc tomorrow and he will add an SSRI (antidepressant) and probably a stimulant of some kind. I am 57 years old, weigh 170 lbs. and have been treated with every kind of psyc. drug you can think of for the past 30 years, plus had ECT about 5 weeks ago. If you are new to the game it is possible your dose is a little too much all at once but the upper limit could be much higher. Perhaps just move it up slower. I think it is a good drug. I have not heard about a 3 1/2 year old being treated so early.

I will keep you informed. Would like to see you post your results as well.

Best wishes,
