Hi there,
I was on 1750 mgs of epilim. When I first went on it - I was throwing up2-3 times a week. It did ease up - but after being on it over 3 years, I was still being sick once a week. It made my hair go curly - well, not exactly all curly - just the front. I came off it myself as I was so sick of throwing up - even though it had decreased a lot. Good luck with it.

It made me throw up and feel sick and tired all day. Also upset my tummy, I have been on it over 3 weeks now and things are more settled. I find my appetite has decreased which is good I want to lose some weight :)

I had no side effects from it. Compared to lithium I definitely feel calmer on it and more at peace within myself (thats when I do actually take the stuff)
I am obsessed with my weight and it has definitely not mede me gain I've been on it 6 months now

Hi,I know its late on this subject and you may not get this but I have been on Epilim chrono for 12 months now. I suffer with the weight gain, even though I cycle and play football and field hockey, regular go hiking Im still struggling with weight I have gained about 1 stone since i began taking them. I do have mood changes but its more just feeling down and low, i dont get angry or agressive.how are you doing now?
