I'm not familiar with Tegretol or Trileptal, but I can definitely see why antipsychotics would help. I use Risperdal on occasion as needed to keep steadier than I might otherwise be. Bone deep calm without grogginess. For me anyway.

Therapy also definitely helps.

(I'm very lucky to have a pdoc who supports my as needed tweaking of meds to keep even.)
