Trying to stop taking a MOOD

Posted by lelebug on October 15, 2004, at 18:44:17

Well I've been on my mood stabilizer Trileptal for about 6 months now. It's not working for me at all. Makes me way to exhausted. Also made me gain a bunch of weight. So I have been weaning myself off of it. This is one of the hardest things I have ever had to do. I can tolerate the dizziness once in a while. But what I can't handle is how angry I feel for no reason. I just feel crabby & edgy & mean. Most of the day I'm in a bad mood. I have one or two times that I want to cry, not bad I just get a bit teary. Then mostly I'm fine. I have had a few days where my body just hurt so bad. so bad, I just ached and ached.

Has anyone gotten off of a mood stabilizer? Does anyone have some advice? What can I do? When will I feel better? If I stick this out will all this anger and achy body stuff stop? Any info would help me at this point. I have no idea what to think or do at this point and no one around me has a clue, as they've never been on any meds.
