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!

Been taking it for 4 or more years, I was just mailed a generic version of it. The generic may contain the therapeutic ingredient, but I bet it is released quicker than done by the name. This change was was without my knowledge.

Comment:
This is the only drug that I have used to treat bipolar disorder. I had been misdiagnosed as having severe depression prior to that. I have been taking it for at least 10 years with great success. My 14 year old son now also takes it with amazing results. Same drugs work well in same families. ALWAYS try that first.
