Reintroducing Trileptal...

Posted by Sheilac on April 9, 2014, at 4:59:09

Looking back over my personal notes I've taken Trileptal on and off since 2006. I never had any painful swelling until the past year and I quit Trileptal in December.

Geodon is good, but since I missed Trileptal for the great sleep, as well as keeping me even, my doc allowed me to try 150mg at bedtime. And it's working for sleep.

I didn't like taking Seroquel & Geodon (Seroquel for sleep). 2 AAPs. Yuk.

So far, no painful swelling, no side effects with Trileptal. My goal is to get back on Trileptal. But I'm a low dose gal.

Pdoc thinks if we go really low and slow maybe we can find the right dose without the side effects (slow like Lamictal), or maybe if we move up slow enough I won't get the side effects.

I love Trileptal and want this to work, then I could drop my Geodon dose down.

I'm guessing if I start to have the swelling, I need to go to my regular doc and get my sodium tested? I never use salt, ever, unless it's already in the food I eat. Plus, I do drink a lot of water. Could that be what causing the swelling? Not enough salt? Do I need to start drinking Gatorade everyday?

Is there anyway to avoid the swelling? Do I need to add a little salt to my diet to avoid the possible hyptotremia?

I can't stress enough how much I want this to work.
