Hi.

I don't know. One would hope so.

I found Trileptal to be very "clean". I wouldn't have known I was taking it.

> I suggested oxcarbazepine to my psychiatrist when I was feeling manic. He prescribed clonazepam! (I might add that I ended up in hospital largely due to it, but that's another story.)

I found valproate to be effective for my manic reactions to medication. At the time, high dosages of lithium didn't help at all. I wish everyone would respond to medications the same way. It would make things a lot easier.

I saw one woman who was in hypomanic state who had a great deal of anger. I don't know if this would be considered a dysphoric hypomania or, rather, a mixed state. I am unclear what the difference is between them. Maybe you can explain this.

The woman was treated with topiramate (Topamax) 200 mg/day. It cleared up the hypomania along with the anger and hostility.

Are your manic states spontaneous, or are they drug-induced? Did your illness begin before you graduated high school? Did you ever have a manic state before being treated with medication for the first time?
