In brief: Oxcarbazepine no go

Oxcarbazepibe is a mood stabilizer (anti-epileptic) that is often used to quell irritability In patients who struggle with this a lot.
Particularly, if it is used in the irritability encountered in bipolar disorder. If you don't feel improved, this med may not be the right choice for you! Contact you doc, let him/her know how you feel, and make a new plan to feel better :)
