Hi Brian.

> Now that I am somewhat acustomed to the tegretol, do you think that my brain/body would accept trileptal now?

Your guess is as good as mine. You are experiencing idiosyncratic negative reactions to these drugs, and I don't know why.

I think the two benefits would be that it might not be lowering the diazepam levels.

Yes, but that should not be a factor at a steady dosage of Tegretol in that you can make an adjustment to the diazepam dosage.

> and that i think the tegretol is giving me quite bad rapid heart beats,

Doxepin is more likely to do that. Do you have diagnosed conduction irregularities? If so, where is the irregularity located?

Personally, I would try Trileptal if I were trying to discontinue diazepam. Unfortunately, you reported having had a bad reaction to it. What would be different this time?

How do you plan to make the switch from Tegretol to Trileptal? Were you going to cross titrate or simply switch over?

I recommend that you write down what you experience with these drugs so that you have a record you can refer to in the future.
