Trileptal (was 150mg 2/day, now 300mg 2/day) makes it incredibly hard to wake up, I'm cold when I do and have had night sweats.
Even after an adrenalin spike from a loud alarm I'm still tired and will fall back to sleep. I used to have this but to a lesser extent before starting Adderall for my ADHD (even after, had trouble with circadian rhythms). Lamotrigine helped amazingly with rhythms (sleep & wake), but I had a reaction (perhaps I just need to try again and start lower, ramp slower).
Thyroid tests done 1 year ago (only one test via blood) along with vitamin levels, taken before any crazy-meds. All were ok. 50mg of Pregnenolone daily is zapping depression for the most part, helped with creatine as well. Sometimes depression goes away with different vitamins (usually iron or potassium). At night, sometimes my mood swings go nuts, but not as often with meds. Asked doctor already but... well. Let's say: I need a new one. =/
I'm thinking: blood sugar or thyroid or hormones or... ? Maybe low cortisol in the morning, high cortisol at night?

Maybe low sodium levels? hmmm...
Nose is also numb today. (first time) This is my 2nd month on Trileptal.
I've also wondering if this means I should try another medication... and/or what tests I should go in for while on Trileptal (generic).

We can't tell you for sure what's going on, really, though some folks on here could probably make educated guesses. Trileptal could very well be toying with your lady hormones. Blood pressure, maybe. Not sure about the blood sugar idea.
Sounds like it's time to get hopping on finding a new primary care physician and/or psychiatrist.
