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.
