Patient discussion about stabilizer

Q. Mood stabilizer Hi there, I just got know Trileptal, as a mood stabilizer. Now what I want to know is that how does a drug for epilepsy WORK to stabilize moods for someone who is bipolar?

A. Lithium - treatment alone is sometimes not enough to control the mood swings seen in people with bipolar disorder. A number of different classes of drugs including the anticonvulsants are used in addition to or sometimes instead of lithium. Trileptal has been evaluated in several studies involving a small number of patients. About 60% of patients treated with lithium alone, saw mild to moderate improvement in their symptoms when Trileptal was added. Side-effects were a big enough problem that about 25% of the people had to stop taking the Trileptal. Drowsiness was the biggest problem. Dizziness, headache, blurred vision, rash, weight gain and tingling were also reported by the patients.
