> fine, i think that i will stick w/ the generic. I'm guessing that my ceiling is 500mgs. I believe that 600mgs of tegretol, is equal to 900 mgs of trileptal, correct me if i'm wrong, and at that dose, it is mimmicing some of the adverse symptoms.
> So perhaps 500 is my ceiling. Like i said, i took 200mgs morning and mid day, and was golden. Apparently it was the 3rd 200mg pill that put me over the edge.
Just remember, Tegretol induces its own metabolism. You might have to raise the dosage at some point just to compensate for the reduction in blood levels.
I would remain at 400mg for another 5 days and not reduce the diazepam.
