    The first week on this (300mg, 2X/day) was wonderful - I finally had some relief from years of bipolar I disorder. After that, the effects gradually went away until I went back to my previous mixed state. We upped the dosage to 600mg, 2X/day and I was in a good place for 3-4 days, then it started wearing off again. Eventually I became very depressed at this dosage. My psychiatrist worked with ...

    Had rash, bumps all over. Started out as dry, flakey skin that no lotion would work, turned to red then purple rash. Shortness of breath too. Most likely Stevens-Johnson Syndrome but no Doctor would look into that specifically. Didn't have rash before and haven't had it since.

    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.
