Trileptal, very much seems to help with anxiety, agitation, being irritable and sleep problems.

It will help to keep the mood from going "up" too as in hypomania/mania as this is its main use.

Tegretol which is very similar to Trileptal/oxcarbazepine acts very much the same way, with the differemce being Tegretol/carbamzepine is slightly stronger, which is turn does slightly have more side effects.

On the other hand, i've read that topamax can "cause" agitation, sleep problems and anxiety. Is possbily the topamax doing her more harm than good?

Either way it looks like your on the right tracks with using trileptal.

Sometimes when I read on this board people are taking a medication, but then symtoms are still persisting they often add another med, which dont get me wrong in some respects that makes sense.

Perhaps it could be that for her, the Topamax is causing more harm than good - if thats the case "adding" something to that doesn't make sense. I would think "replacing" it would be better. That way its one less problem, less side effects and overall less medication which adding more seems to make things more complicating with knowing which med is helping what?/and more importantly not helping what - and if thats the case making things worse?

As obviously someone with bipolar goes through the very extream down depressive side..I was just curious about her hypomania with regards to the oppisite side of depression

Has she had the typical symtoms of feeling extream happniess, lots of energy, full of confidence..resulting in reckless behaviour etc for a sustained pererd of time like a couple of weeks, or months?.
