Question Trileptal = Mood Stabilizer?

Hello,

I was diagnosed as Bipolar w/ psychotic features years ago at the age of 17, and I've been on tons of different medications. I started off off on Risperdal by itself and hated the blunted emotions + weight gain it gave me so it was changed to Geodon. I turned out to be extremely allergic to Geodon and was taken off it. Then I went off medications completely until around 2-3 years ago. My doctor has me on 5 different medications currently but the one I have questions on is Trileptal. Has anybody else been given this as a mood stabilizer? and if so, Did it actually work? I've been on it for 2 years now and still feel down most of the time. Not fully depressed, just not in the greatest mood and I rarely feel happy. Every time I tell my doctor he just adjusts the dose. I currently take 300mg a day.

Other medications:
Abilify - 10mg (anti-psychotic)
Lexapro - 10mg (anti-depressant)
Hydroxyzine - 25mg (panic attacks)
Remeron - 30mg (insomnia + anti-depressant)
