> 300 mg/day Trileptal (Note: Trileptal is my antimanic med. If I get hypomanic, I jump it up to 600 or 900.)

My knee-jerk reaction to this is that it is the worst thing you can do with this medication. Pulsing any psychotropic is considered counterproductive and often yields treatment-resistance. Perhaps more important is that allowing the mania to appear at all just reinforcing the cycle. After mania comes depression. Stop the mania, and you might also avoid the depressive rebound that occurs during a switch from mania to depression. Since Trileptal is so useful to you episodically, it might act to penetrate your cycle and prevent mood swings if used chronically. It very often takes 6 months or longer for mood-stabilizer treatment to effect a significant reduction of ultra-rapid cycling.

Great post, by the way.
