I don't know about clinical advantage, I can't say I'd advise tegretol over trileptal, but then it seems to work for you.

But I'm confused...

"Turns out to me, that the XR version turned out to act exactly like Trileptal did for me, some really strange and adverse effects (don't wanna go in to detail) that I didn't like."


So why take the XR version of Tegretol if it had unpleasant effects... especially if they're unpleasant to the point of being strange and adverse ?

Or am I missing something ?
