Just knowing that has helped her a lot, but not quite enough. She's tried several meds, and so far has had the most success with Lamictal (and I have another friend who's doing great with it too), although there are some unpleasant side effects, so she can't stay on it continuously. Trying Trileptal now, very small dose because she's shown very severe reactions when given the "normal" dose for some other meds. No results to report from the trileptal yet, but we're steadily increasing the dosage. So we'll see.
