Trileptal - how long do initial side effects last?

Posted by bert99 on September 20, 2008, at 18:04:00

Hi there,

I started Trileptal last night, I have taken two doses so far. To be honest I feel like I have been hit by a mack truck.

I have been looking through the archives but haven't found much to answer my specific questions on this topic.

I was just wondering how long long it usually takes for these specific side effects to go away.

I feel completely stoned, inside of my head, depersonalized, everything is bright, and unable to hear anything except what I am focused on.

I slept in today until 2 p.m!!

I am also taking Zyprexa 5 mg and Topamax 400 mg.

Last year I tried Topiramate for three weeks before giving up as I felt completely out of it for most of that time.

I don't feel any particularly calming effects yet.

Will these side effects go away, or is it the same deal with Trileptal?

I am taking this for BPII with issues such as depression, rage and agitation. I'm hypomanic right now.

Thank you kindly for your suggestions/comments.
