I had bad heart palpitations from taking 900 mgs of the above. my dr raised my dose from 450 to 900 which caused me to have the heart palpitations. I have not taken any for over 24 hours. I have had no withdrawl symptoms. I dont wish to take anymore. I take it for my bi polar condition. The dr I had in the emergancy room said it would be safe for me to stop since I have only been taking it for about 4 months. Is this true? I used to take klonopin wich I could not take with this pill. Is it safe for me to not take anymore of the trileptal and take Klonpin in its place?
