Dropping Trileptal

Posted by Christ_empowered on January 24, 2014, at 10:49:08

I was on 1200/Trileptal, 30/Abilify, and up to 300/Neurontin. Briefly on 20/Prozac.

So, my doc Rx'd Tofranil-PM, 150mgs at night. Its a once-nightly Tofranil. I figured it'd be generic and cheap. Wrong! Old school Tofranil is quite cheap. This stuff is generic, but expen$ive. So, disability won't cover it w/o prior authorization. I called the clinic and suggested that maybe normal Tofranil would be better. Haven't heard from them or the pharmacy.

Anyway, I did a little online drugs interaction checker. No wonder I've been feeling agitated! Trileptal reduces Abilify blood levels. Abilify is the core of my anti-batsh!t cocktail. Trileptal is OK and all, but it kinda scares me (osteoporosis, anyone?), and its not the main medication. It would also reduce levels of Tofranil.

So,...then there were 2. Low-dose Neurontin and high dose Abilify. Today is day #1 of no mo' Trileptal. We'll see how it goes.
