Tegrital CR is an anticonvulsant used to control epilepsy (for controlling Partial seizures with complex symptomatology, Generalized tonic-clonic seizures (grand mal) as well as Mixed seizure patterns). Tegrital CR works by decreasing nerve impulses that cause seizures and pain.
Tegrital CR is also used in the treatment of Bipolar Mood Disorder, the pain associated with true trigeminal neuralgia, glossopharyngeal neuralgia, control the pain associated with painful diabetic neuropathy, control diabetes insipidus ( a condition resulting in excessive thirst and urination) as well as to control the symptoms of alcohol withdrawal syndrome. The active ingredient present in Tegrital CR is Carbamazepine.
Take Tegrital CR exactly as it was prescribed for you. Do not take the medication in larger amounts, or take it for longer or shorter than recommended by your doctor. Your doctor may occasionally change your dose to make sure you get the best results from Tegrital CR. It may take up to 4 weeks of using this medicine before your symptoms improve. Do not stop taking Tegrital CR even if you feel better. You may have increased seizures or unpleasant side effects if you stop using it suddenly. Call your doctor promptly if this medicine does not seem to be working as well in preventing your seizures. Do not crush, chew, or break the tablet - swallow it whole. Breaking the tablet would cause too much of the drug to be released at one time.
Tegrital CR can lower the blood cells that help your body fight infections. This can make it easier for you to bleed from an injury or get sick from being around others who are ill. Your blood will need to be tested on a regular basis to be sure your blood cell count does not get too low. Do not miss any scheduled appointments. Your doctor may recommend having your eyes checked regularly while you are taking Tegrital CR.
The most frequently observed Tegrital CR side effects, particularly during the initial phases of therapy, are dizziness, drowsiness, unsteadiness, nausea, and vomiting. To minimize the possibility of such adverse reactions, therapy should be started at the low dosage recommended.
The most severe adverse reactions have been observed in the hemopoietic system and skin, the liver, and the cardiovascular system.
Get emergency medical help if you have any signs of an allergic reaction including: hives, difficulty breathing, and swelling of your face, lips, tongue, or throat.
