My son is 14 1/2 and suffers from depression and ADHD. He is not diagnosed bipolar but his mood swings and angry outbursts have become unmanageable and he is very erratic. After going up and down with Lexapro and Adderall, we have settled on lower doses of those meds and are now adding in Trileptal even without the bipolar diagnosis. Does anybody have teenagers that have taken this? Anybody have similar experiences to share so we know what to expect? I am particularly worried about the side effects of increased suicidal thoughts as this has been an issue for us in the past. Help!
