When I first started I was on 100 mg of Tegretol , the pdoc the following week raised it 200mg .... then a about 10 days later I started feeling a bit unhinged .... realising that it could be part of getting used to meds I left it for another 5 days .... I still felt unhinged ... my pdoc then raised my dose to 400mg.... now im feeling stable ....
It takes a while to get the right dose , you may or may not feel the same way you are now in afew days .... but as always if you are unsure see your Pdoc.
Im feeling a bit as if im not coping at the moment , but I have also just lost a grandbaby , so I need to let the initail shock wear off and then see ..otherwise its back to the pdoc again.
Keep a diary of your mood swings ... and exactly how you feel.
What type ar you bTW ???
Once you can handlle life and its challenges rationally for a longer period then you are on the right track.
Hang in thre , its not easy , but not impossible.
