> > Wow, adding that 200mgs sure hit me. Started to sweat, typing woresened, anxiety, felt on the brink of a nervous breakdown. I hope that this all passes. I hope that I made the right choice with this med.
> This is not what I was hoping to hear. You seem to report progress in that you are functioning better and going out more, etc. Then you report nearing a nervous breakdown. I cannot justify suggesting that you continue with this drug trial. The object was to make things better and not worse. I do not believe that 1000mg will serve you any better than 800mg. It sounds like you are experiencing withdrawal to me.

It seemed to be an initial scary reaction (this has happened at other increased doses). Now settling in a bit. Much more comfy. W/o the tegretol, i can not leave the house. I can't afford to do or have that, there are things that I HAVE to be able to attend. If i were to discontinue, the flood gates of more racing thoughts would be worse, and i would return to being housebound.

I think that i'm in it for the long haul. If I do well at 800mgs for 5-7 days, then i think it might be good to continue to 1000mgs (because i could dose every 4 hours, perfect), then begin tapering.

Let me know what you think.
