    Comment:
    On this medication for Bipolar. It works really well for my mood. I have continued to experience some side effects, such as being a little unsteady on my feet when getting up or turning my body, but it's not bad (especially since I'm clumsy anyway). I have also experienced some mild blurry vision. However, overall, I am really impressed with the medication's results.

    I take this medicine for bi polar disorder. It has been amazing. I have not gained weight or had any significant side effects to speak of like with every other medicine. It really helps me with mania and irritability. I do try to take the biggest amount of my dose at night though, due to daytime sleepiness. 900 mg at night 300 mg in the morning. It works for me.

    This medication was supposed to be a cleaner version of Tegretol. After taking it for 4 weeks my girlfriend noted that I was very irritable and I could not sleep at all. This medication did not work for me and I do not recommend it.

    Comment:
    Taken for Bipolar Depression: This was the first medicine prescribe for my recently diagnosed bipolar depression. Yes, I had stopped cycling as often, however, within a week I was increasingly irritable and had a personality change. It got to the point where people I worked with commented on my personality change. Since changing meds, the irritability has completely gone away.
