I'm sure many here take carbamazepine, but I'm more specifically interested in the Equetro brand. Has anyone here tried Equetro before and had any luck? Anyone here who has taken both generic carbamazepine and Equetro and felt there may have been any differences? Before taking Depakote ER, I was taking Oxtellar XR, which is the extended release brand of oxcarbazepine. I needed something more calming than that because we needed the anti-convulsant to pull the mood-stabilizing weight. Reason being is that appropriate mood-stabilizing doses of AAPs pretty much invariably cause akathisia for me. So the AAPs need to take a back seat and act as a booster. We decided to switch to Depakote, but I have gained quite a bit of weight. I'm not totally convinced that I even want to switch, but oxcarbazepine did do a good job, and I understand that carbamazepine can be even more calming. As always, thanks in advance!
