Hi, Jay.

> Do the mood stabilizers not work for you? Have you tried combining Ritalin with carbamazepine? Amphetamine with carbamazepine has worked unbelievably for me, when I was at my absolute worse. I just thought since Ritalin worked for you, this combo might work.

Carbamazepine (Tegretol) is a great idea. I wouldn't have thought of it. I found its cousin drug, oxcarbazepine (Trileptal) to be far less sedating than carbemazepine. In addition, oxcarbazepine does not produce agranulocytosis as a potentially fatal side effect, for which regular blood tests are recommended. Currently, the thought is that agranulocytosis is rare with this drug, and that blood tests are not as critical once one gets beyond a few months without it appearing. I really don't know if the old, cautious administration is actually necessary, but I haven't looked into it.

As far as oxcarbazepine is concerned, the one serious side effect is hyponatremia - low blood sodium. I don't know the statistics regarding its rate of occurrence. You can actually die from drinking too much water. It waters down the blood stream and ends up causing hyponatremia. It's called water intoxication.
