Epilepsy, bipolar disorder or nerve pain Carbamazepine Tegretol

Uses
Tegretol (Carbamazepine) is an anticonvulsant medicine which also exhibits analgesic properties. Its mechanism of action involves affecting nerve impulses and signals in the brain. Indications include seizures caused by epilepsy, trigeminal neuralgia and other forms of nerve pain, and to stabilise the mood of patients suffering from bipolar disorder.

Experts have hypothesized that its anticonvulsant benefits may be due to it decreasing the occurrences of polysynaptic responses and other abnormal electrical brain activity. This is achieved by stabilizing sodium channels, so as to prevent nerve cell excitement (considered to be a contributory factor in causing seizures).

When used for nerve pain, it may work by inhibiting the transmission of pain signals to the brain. Its potentiation of the GABA receptors might be responsible for this. Other conditions for which this medicine has been studied include ADHD, schizophrenia, complex regional pain syndrome as well as disorders not mentioned here.

Dosage and Administration
Tegretol (Carbamazepine) is provided as 400mg strength tablets which are taken via the oral route, alongside a glass of water. The tablets are to be swallowed whole with a glass of water. Your doctor will assess the severity of your symptoms when calculating the right dosage, and other factors (such as the condition in need of treatment) will also be considered. It is common for patients to be told to start out with a daily dosage of 100mg or 200mg taken twice per day. This may then be increased (if the doctor feels that it is necessary) and possibly reduced again for maintenance treatment. Therefore, it is extremely important that you carefully listen to the instructions of your doctor and do not exceed the maximum daily dosage.

  • Memory problems
