Danibell25-don't know how much I can help you with advice per se. I'm 32 and have been on Tegretol for like 16 years. I take 1000mg/day. It controlled the manic episodes quickly and permanently (well, as long as i take it that is...). My main prob for most of the time since I was dx'ed bi-polar has been the depression. It hasn't helped with that. Not really known to do that anyway, tho. Hard for me to tell what side effects can be attributed directly to it...except for sleepiness. I've had some memory loss over the years but who knows what that's from- I've been on a lot! Dunno about grapefruit, but there was a thread on this board about grapefruit and drugs in general not long ago...you might try searching for it. I eat it- not daily...no probs.

Don't know if you're a woman, but Tegretol decreases the effectiveness of birth control pills...

Hope this helps a little...
Kar
