Yes, Trileptal is a mixed back. Because I won't go on Geodon or Xyprexa (which caused severe weight gain), she has me popping trileptal and klonopin.
I take two 300s during the day when I feel anxious. Then for sleeping I take 800 and 25 mg. of trazadone. It will only produce six hours of sleep.
Occasionally I'm taking klonopin.
I don't consider this regime a solution, just a bandaid. Triileptal is fairly safe though with no side effects that I can speak of. It's short acting thought.
