My psych doc has decided that dealing with my anxiety is not a priority and that SSRI's are not the answer after my extreme moods of crying to rage to very upbeat while on Sertraline. Instead she feels we need to deal with my extreme mood swings and has given me Carbamazepine starting at a low dose and to work up from there.
I have read the information on Carbamazepine and the side effects but am looking for some input from those who have taken or are currently taking this med
What can I expect from this med and what should I look out for?
I also have chronic pain and wonder if it will help with that too.
Thanks for your help
