Hi Ed thanks for the info : )

I thought/think it is the case the carbamazepine is stopping the propantheline.

I've just recently started the carbamazepine, i'm on a low one of 200mg.
As for the propantheline im not on a set dose, but have been fine with 15-30mg (1 or 2 aday) that was however before the carbamazepine.


How many times a day do you take them?

Once a day at the moment for the carbamazepine and once or twice for the propantheline.

Any side effects?

Some pretty negative ones from the carbamazepine, general sickness feeling, sleepy and a kinda semi depressive mood - but i guess thats how all mood stabiliers make you feel to do their job!
None really that bother me for the probantheline.
>
Are you on any other medication?

Propranolol - as needed basis.

I have tried in the past years different anti-depressants but overall they do no good for my condition as they just seem to set up a crash into depression for the future, or do not work.

Although my highs have never been too extream they are enough to send me into a deep depression lasting 6-8 months, so i've come to the conclusion its best in the long run to stay away from anything that can push my mood up as it will eventually cycle back down.

As for things now, my mood isn't too bad, however im on the constant search for the right med to go on with long-term. I deal with anxiety quite badly but my pdoc refused my request for clonazepam, although let me have propranolol - i think the clonzepam could be of some help.

Sorry about this waffle - just getting things off my chest i think! lol

I feel that what I need is the weakest mood stabiliser I can get. I know you can reduce dose's etc.. but in your opinon, which of all the anti convulsants does nothing for depression and has fairly "mild" anti-manic effects?

Many thanks for your thoughts on this ed

Nick

Ps I see you used to suffer from anxiety quite badly and relate to what you said - very pleased to see your over that now : ) Hope you dont mind me asking, but what is your diagnosis Ed and which medication, if any, are you taking?
