Hi Maxime

> It is the same as Tegretol but has an oxygen atom attached to it's chemical makeup. This atom is what makes it have less side effects than Tegretol and have no contraindications with other meds.

I believe trileptal is more effective against the manic side while lamictal is better when depression is the dominant symptom. However, trileptal seems to have less side effects.

I've never had hypo-mania, is that 'needed' for BPII? I do have recurring unipolar depression.
