I have been on so many meds at the same time, and the trileptal made me emotionless, frustrated, and worst of all, confused. Just because you get a manic episode from your ADHD meds doesn't mean you're bipolar. Luckily, I got off of it, and I felt like my old self. Being irritable once in a while is ok too.

Comment:
I am a 14-year-old with Bipolar ll and ADHD, and I find Trileptal to work very well with Abilify. I still have my highs and lows while on this drug, so I tend to blame the Trileptal when I'm feeling depressed and sick. That's not the case.

Comment:
I took this medicine for 7 years for bipolar disorder. It made every mood intensify. It made drowsy like. i felt zombie like after taking it. I'm now off of it but found out that I was diagnosed incorrectly I have HORRIBLE anxiety problems not sure if its related but I have a horrible memory now. I'm so against medicine after being wrongfully diagnosed
