Comment:
On this for BiPolar. Not too sure on it. My moods are "brittle", not very reliable for it's use as a mood stabilizer so far. Unusual tension near top of head, like wearing a band way too tight.

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.

Comment:
I was prescribed this medication for Bipolar II. I have been through trials of over 12 different meds at this point, and I wish I could say Trileptal worked, but the side effects are terrible. I feel like it stole my personality. I am normally a high-energy (not necessarily mania) person. This med made me so very sleepy that I could not keep my eyes open during the day. I wanted to sleep all ... Show Full Comment
