What does Trileptal **DO**??

Posted by med_empowered on November 13, 2005, at 20:25:15

Hey everyone! I'm considering re-starting psychiatric medication, but I dont know. The only medication that really **helps** seems to be Trileptal but there's a very small dosage range that helps (600-900), it can make me feel dulled, and it isn't so great for depression. IT makes me wonder...what exactly is Trileptal doing in my brain?

Link what does that mean and SLS suggested I aim for 900mg since my old pdoc seems to thinks I may be soft bipolar or bipolar ll. Since anxiety and depression have lasted so many years. And med I thought you were on medication? Fondly, Phillipa

Trileptal is an anticonvulsant with some mood stabalizing properties. It affects the temporal lobes.

Give a full dose a whirl, I guess.
