> Hi Ben. Trileptal is closely related to Tegretol *(carbamazepine) which is considered a gold standard for neuropathic pain. FWIW, I take Trileptal (for seizure prophylaxis) and haven't noticed any side effects. But I'm not a "med-sensitive" person. Still it generally has few side effects compared to Tegretol.

A lot of pdocs will start people out at 30 or even 45 mg because people tolerate that range better than 7.5-15. Zyprexa is generally really sedating, and it also lasts a very long time.

Many thanks Elizabeth

I read a lot about the lesser sedation on higher doses of Remeron (Mirtazapine). I think its more theoretical (increasing Noradrenaline) because my pdoc started to patients on 30 mg at night and they were knocked out for two days ! I know that not all do agree with this but thats why we react all different.
For me Reboxetine (Edronax) was more stimulating than Methylphenidate (Ritalin) but pooped out as an adjunct to SSRIs very quickly.
How much Trileptal is considered to treat pain and often do you have to take it ? Could it be a good mood stabilizer for unipolars ?
