I'm curious about your experience with Trileptal...
I've been on Topamax and I'm decidedly unhappy with
it. Mainly because of some pretty major sexual side
effects (it makes my lips, fingers and um...other parts
of my body feel numb)...but also because I feel it really
flattens me out to a degree I'm not happy with. I don't know
if ALL mood stabilizers do this and I just have to live with
it, or if maybe Trileptal may be better in this respect. Do
you feel it flattens you out? Have you experienced sexual
side effects with it or lowered libido? What about weight
gain? (That's one thing I DID like about the
weight gain...maybe even some weight loss....not quite as interested
in food...although it doesn't taste as good either, which I kind
of miss....I used to love to of life's greatest pleasures....
now it's kind of like "ho hum" you take away sex and food...and
you feel flattened out half the time...what does that leave? Not much.

Anyway, I'd appreciate any feedback...
