It sounds like you are going to need a few different meds to manage the mood instability you experience. But I think Tegretol is a fine med to start with. What dose are you at? Perhaps you need more to get some of it's calming effect? But, Tegretol does take about a month or so to "kick in." So maybe you just have to hang in there for a while.

Since you are tolerating the Tegretol and it's not making you "worse", perhaps adding depakote would be a good next step. Depakote is terrific for anger outbursts, agitation and might even help with some impulse control.
I take low doses of 3 mood stabilizers to keep my BP2 in line (depakote, lithium and neurontin)! And it took years of trial and error to find the mix that works, for now....

Best of luck
