> One is supposed to dose four times a day. However, once you are at a high enough dosage, you might be able to dose three time a day. You'll just have to experiment. At 600mg, I would first try 200mg every 8 hours. At 800mg, you could try 200mg-200mg-400mg.

I do have a fast med metabolism. I can feel the effects, then it completely wears off after a couple of hours.

I have been dosing 8 hours apart, along w/ the diazepam, and for sure feels like interdose wd.

I wonder about the ER version 3 times a day, but just taking that for 2 days, and having really bad memories of my trileptal day came back.

So I could hold this for 5 days, then try the 800 if tolerable. Then I could dose 250-250-300 would probably work better for me, or 2-2-4.

Or if on the ER version, I could go 200-200-400.

Why do you think that the ER version would mimic some effects of trileptal, that the immediate release doesn't?
