    I am 50 and took Tegritol XR for 20 years for epilepsy. I had no idea about that it caused arthritis. My neurologist told me about 4 years ago and I switched to Keppra. However, I developed severe arthritis in my spine, that lead to stenosis and I had to have major spine surgery. I'm so angry that my doctor didn't switch my medication earlier. She actually seemed surprised when she realized I was still on it. I have a new neurologist.

    Hi i take tegretol controlled release 600mg twice a day. I have sufferd with epilepsy for over 30 years recently I have sufferd 2 early miscarriages. I have had blood tests to see if there's anything with me causing them but have come back normal I have also seen a neurologist who has asked his epilepsy nurse to research further if the tegretol may have caused them. I'm feeling like I want to reduce the dose but I've been told not to. Juat wonderd if anyone has experience with this? Thanks

  • High cholesterol

    Just started having high cholesterol and I know it's not what I'm eating. It has to be the tegretol.
    Doctor can not get my thyroid levels stabilized with my medication.

    I have epilepsy and have been prescribed Tegetrol CR400 x 1600mg daily. Severe RLS and nerve pain in my arms at times for some years medication Sinemet 25/250mg X 6 daily. This medication is effective but tiring. If I don't take Sinemet prior to meals RLS gets noticeably bad. I'm sure I am not alone with this problem.
    I would be interested to hear from persons with a similar problem to mine and if they have had any success with controlling RLS with different medications?
    Thankyou
