Can Higher Doses of Trileptal Cause Irritability and Personality Changes?

My son has been taking intuniv for ADD and amantadine to control his rages. He was also taking 1200 mg of trileptal. The trileptal I believe caused his rages to get worse and he was irritable all day long. The doctor recently cut the dose in half and he is a lot less irritable. Has this been anyone else's experience with mood stabilizers

I am NOT a dr but I am BP and have 3 BP kids. From. My experience, which is extensive, the answer is yes. ADHD and BP meds feed off each other. Increasing one can cause a change in the other. that is why balance is so I important.
