Default Trileptal

My daughter is 16 years old. She had her first seizure when she was 5 months old. She was on Phenobarbitol for 2 years. She had been seizure free until now. She was prescribed Trileptal, 150 mg in A.M. and 150 mg inP.M.. I have to say her mood swings are making her and everyone around her crazy. One minute happy easy going and 5 minutes later she is mad at the world. She tells me she is sorry and can't help it and is very upset over not being able to control her emotions better. She experiences tiredness after taking the medicine,cannot concentrate,thinks she sees something out of the corner of her eye,has a midday rush of energy and then gets exhausted,she feels like she is gaining weight, has numbness in her left upper arm. The bottom line is we want her off this medicine and to find out if there something else available to help keep the seizures away. She has been on the medicine since March 25th, 2005. Her dose was just raised to 150mg in A.M. and 300mg in P.M.. She has not experienced another seizure since March but her side effects of the medicine has increased.
