    I have been on Trileptal for 8 years to treat bi-polar disorder. I have had only two side effects... double vision, and wakefulness. The double vision occurs when I am over tired, and is easily corrected by wearing my glasses. The wakefulness has been a bit of a problem, as I feel I am not getting a full night's rest.

I have tried many other meds but Trileptal seems to be doing rather well for me. I have experienced a little spaciness and forgetfulness. Minor headaches every so often. But the overall benefits are great. I a ... Show Full Comment

    I have actually been prescribed this drug to help with neuropathy in feet/legs. It was at first a "mircle" of help, but like most drugs, one can quickly adjust to them. I do so even faster than most. Now its combined with lyrica to aid with the nerve ending pain. I haven't seen many posts for others being given this drug for this condition. I have talked to others in my local ar ... Show Full Comment

    I started Trileptal for irritability from chronic depression. I really like it but it does make me sleepy during the day sometimes. It does help me sleep, but I am always waking up in the middle of the night. Great for the appetite as it doesnt make you hungry! I really like this medicine and I am only on 150MG once a day so far. I aslo has Bi-polare Disorder II and it does help with the mania!
