Morning all
I have been on the same dose of tegretol for about 6 weeks now .. after taking about 5 weeks to get to the "right" dose .. the last few days I have been feeling that the old feeling of irrititability and "anger" is coming back , its not as severe as before but bad enough to have my husband concerned.
Could it be that I need to be a patient or could it be that a visit to my pdoc is warranted? has it been long enough to have completly stabilised on meds?

Hi Carolsclan,

You have been on the meds for a while now and have been doing well despite a lot of stress all around you. Listening to your husband is important. The people around us see us better than ourselves, and that is a proven fact. If this continues I would definately go in to see your pdoc and discuss this. It could be that the all the stress is finally getting to you. You may need a slight adjustment. Don't wait too long, you don't want things to escalate and throw you into an episode. Listen to your supportive husband.

Keep us posted. (((Hugs)))

Hi Carolsclan,

I would call the doc too. It might just be time for an adjustment. You've been through a lot, so it's no surprise that it gets "noisy." Don't make life hard on yourself -- just call.

I have been on Tegretol for over 6 months now, and I don't recall having irritability or other such things. I agree with Sukay and Serafena, you should have it checked out. Please let us know how things turn out.
