Since taking this drug I rarely feel manic. There seems to be some side effects such as more fatigue, weight gain and hair loss.

I went to the emergency room, although my spe ...

I was recently diagnosed with SP and Complex Partial Seizures. Started on 500 mg twice a day and after a week, went to 1000 mg twice a day.
