I am taking Trileptal for mood stabilization for Bipolar Disorder. He claims it's the only mood stabilizer that doesn't cause weight gain. Has that been you experience on the drug?
I was on Trileptal for 3 months, and my weight didn't change.. I have tried almost all of the different mood stablizers and the only one that effected my weight was Depakote. I am a very slinder person, so it didn't really bother me with the weight gain... Hope the Trileptal works out for you. :)
Pippi4J, Everyone's body works different to medications. I would suggest that you give the medication at least a month to see what experience you have with it. If it turns out to be a bad one for you then you can discuss this with your provider and look for another medication to see how that one works. It's all a trail and error on these medications. Wishing you well.
