    I have depression, Anxiety, and very bad mood swings. Ive been taking Trileptal for my mood swings for over a year now, and it has made such dramatic improvement on my life. Not only did it stabilize my mood, but also worked to treat my anxiety as well. The first week or so taking it, I was a bit dizzy and groggy but after that those symptoms went away, and in weeks my mood was stable and I was o ... Show Full Comment

I take 600mg in the morning and 1200mg at night.

    I was diagnosed with Bipolar II Disorder. I was prescribed Trileptal as a mood stabilizer to help slow down the constant racing/obsessive thoughts. However, after some adjustments I found the right dose (150 mg) in letting me slow down and focus.

    I'm giving this drug a five star rating because it has saved my life. I was not properly diagnosed for years with depression and was on Celexa and Ativan. I never could get off of the Ativan. The anxiety attacks were actual hell and caused me to be unable to function. I actually have Potsdam with bipolar. Now I can have conversation and desire to live. I see better days.
