When professionals take my medical history they never seem to have a clue what this one even is!

I was on this for 3 years. I don't recall side effects that were particularly miserable. The first few days I didn't speak clearly and had a slight slur but that disappeared. I just felt "slow." Fogged out. I stopped driving because I didn't trust my reaction times. Honestly I was only on it because the psychiatrist promised to wean me off Clonazepam once I hit my max dose of Trileptal. Never happened. I weaned myself off gradually and didn't notice a darn difference in my anxiety.
