> I take 1200mgs/ daily. I worry that the dose may be too high. I jumped at the chance to reduce the Abilify dosage, but I've never asked to reduce the Trileptal. I view it as less noxious than the tranquilizer.
> I haven't had intense, in your face "mania" (or..whatever...) in years. I think the Abilify is the main player in my lil combo. The Wellbutrin seems to provide some mood elevation, and the trileptal calms agitation, which I get during bad low points and high(er) points.
> OK. how low do you think I can go, realistically?

Are you asking how much you can reduce the trileptal? We all fight with medications; well, at least I do, and really relate to your efforts. But as an outsider looking in, I'm concerned because you've been stable for sometime, and when you reduce abilify, you become more symptomatic. So are you taking your full dose of abilify? (If you don't mind me asking.)

You could ask your doc about going to 900 mg and see how you feel. Maybe another trileptal user will weigh in.
