perscribed 2000mg of epilim to be taken over a 24 hour period for borderline personality disorder,to aid in mood stabilisation. i have been on this dose for about a month now , i have been on epilim for about 6 months. long term side effects for me have been weight gain, fatique, feeling flat, low concentration, and feeling detached from surroundings and people.
short term side effects (when dose has been increased over the period of 6 months ) have been nausea, anger, tiredness, loss of appetite and gain of appetite, and poor concentration.
the positive of this medication has been , erratic moods have been stabilised, thinking has become more rational, not effected as much emotionally by social surroundings.
my concerns on this medication is the long term effects on my system, as i have read that it can cause long term damage on red blood cell platlets, bone marrow deterioration, and organ damage, i have liver function tests every month.
