Answered by Collin Stancle 1 year ago.

Carbatrol keeps the seizures at bay. No, weaning is not necessary - it was not the removal of the medication causing the seizures, it was that seizures were going to be there anyway and there was no med to stop them from developing. One reason to wean off of a medication is to begin another one, to prevent seizure from occuring during the trasfer period. It sounds like a 2nd medication was not foreseen nor scheduled to begin, so weaning would not have mattered. The hospital has put him back on meds since it is apparent he can't simply quit them (i.e., his epilepsy is pronounced and seizures occur more often than the doctor anticipated). I imagine the doctors will prescribe another antiseizure medication to begin as he weans off of carbatrol, to prevent anymore seizures. Answered by Frederic Espinoza 1 year ago.

Could i die if i smoke weed on carbatrol?
Ive been wanting to try fake weed but am afraid to because im on a medication called Carbatrol and i wasnt sure of the side effects of smoking fake weed with Carbatrol or if i could die possibly, i would appreciate the help thank you. Asked by Laraine Gilliam 1 year ago.

If you are using carbatrol means that you must have some problems with your health already, it also could mean many other things. Drinking, smoking, drugs, any of these mixed with carbatrol wont have deadly affects on you. Carbatrol is made to be mixed with other drugs, mixing it with marijuana will not cause additional effects to you body. Carbatrol use is actually more dangerous then the smoking of marijuana. By saying this I'm not influencing you to try, but mixing Carbamazepine and marijuana is not dangerous. (well, it doesn't add additional risks, its also possible that carbatrol lowers the risks that weed can have on a person) You can read these sources to confirm the information i provided you: Answered by Micah Crighton 1 year ago.

I used to take carbatrol for epilepsy and I have been noticing that in all of the pictures of me during that?
Time my smile wasn't like it usually was. I guess I'm asking if carbatrol can affect your smile? It made me look unhappy all the time. Asked by Leonor Miosek 1 year ago.

Carbatrol was one of the several seizure meds they put me on. I forget why that medicine didn't work. I just remember, some of the reactions I had were very, very bad. I got pulled off of one medicine *instantly*, which was *very* unusual. That just shows you how weird some of my reactions were. Now I'm on Dilantin and Topamax. It's not perfect, but I'm stable enough to live a life. I'm on a high enough dose to probably put most adults under the table. I can't go near alcohol. Answered by Art Seese 1 year ago.


Is it safe to take ecstasy w/ Carbatrol?
gee wonder why I'm asking? Asked by Ardella Lach 1 year ago.

I have like 6 ex pills that I was planning on taking before I had bad thoughts and was prescribed Carbatrol. Was wondering if it was safe to take ecstasy while Carbatrol is in my system. Carbatrol is a mood stabilizer. I know ecstasy is not safe in the first place but does it have bad interactions with mood stabilizers? Answered by Vennie Deocampo 1 year ago.

Carbatrol has the highest potential for drug interactions through liver enzymes. So probably, yes there would be interactions, and no, it's damned unsafe. God knows what having both in your brain itself would do. Bipolar and ecstasy is just a godawful combination. Answered by Cinthia Throne 1 year ago.

well, the fabulous thing about street drugs like X is that you really have no idea what is going into them. A friend of mine had to go to the ER after taking X because she started to get really sick, vomiting, loss of consciousness, ect. Turns out the X had drain cleaner added, and it just about killed her. So, my advice is, no, it's not safe. Answered by Natashia Kinkaid 1 year ago.

don't take them together, and when you do take the X, make sure that you have a tripsitter (babysitter) to watch you and keep you under control. this really helps a lot. Answered by Isa Hourigan 1 year ago.

ecstacy is mood altering and so is carbatrol. I wouldn't recommend combining. Think twice before killing yourself with street drugs. Answered by Layla Wadding 1 year ago.


How do you deal with your manic bi polar behavior? What medicine have you found best? I'm on carbatrol...?
for the most part I like this drug but I am still experincing outbursts of emotions that I know are not normal or healthy. Should the dose be increased? Asked by Valda Vollucci 1 year ago.

Talk to your doctor. Yes, you may need your dose increased or something else added on. Carbatrol (Tegretol) tends to be a good med for dealing with the manic side. It's also okay with cycling. It's not the strongest for depression. All mentioned because you got bum info in the answer above. If it's working w/o serious side effects, stay with it. Also working with your pdoc is your best bet. I deal with it thru a combination of therapy and med adjustments. Finding the right cocktail takes time and it's an ongoing adjustment once you do (only less frequently and a lessor amount, at least for me). Living on a set sleep-wake schedule helps a lot as does regular exercise and eating well. Paying attention to my mood and calling my doc at first sign has proved to be smart, too. Of coures, friends and family relationships are important. I like working and living a normal life, too. Oh, right, my best med turned out to be polypharmacy with a high dose of Lithium, mid/lowish doses of Depakote and Lamictal, and a little bit of Seroquel. Answered by Anton Overcast 1 year ago.

I take Lamotrigine, Quetiapine, Ziprasidone, and, Aripiprazole. I was on Carbamazepine(Carbatrol) and it did absolutely nothing. I was on Topiramate and it made my mood swings horrible, I was severely manic for a week and then serverely depressed for two before I was finally taken off. I was on Oxcarbazepine and it induced seizures in me (ironically enough, I know). Everyone responds differently though. I would talk to your pdoc about switching the medication if it's not working, as (as my pdoc explained) you should be experiencing some benefit from the medication for the dose to be increased. Answered by Dot Gutter 1 year ago.

Carbatrol is not the 'gold standard' medication for treating bipolar disorder. You might want to talk with your physician about a med adjustment. Have you considered lithium? Lithium is generally the MOST effective med in treating bipolar. It is also the most effective in controlling the upswing (mania), whereas a med like carbatrol is more effective in warding off the down (depression) aspect of bipolar. If not lithium, there are a ton of other mood-stabilizing agents that can be utilized (Tegretol, Triliptel, Depakote, etc.) Answered by Evette Iseman 1 year ago.

I am currently taking Lamictal. I have tried several medications and I have found this one to be the best so far. I still have some outburst but they are nothing like they were. I have never taken Carbatrol so I'm not sure. Answered by Marhta Zagami 1 year ago.


I'm on 2 medicines for epilepsy- lexapro and carbatrol. Do I need to stay dry forever?
(alcohol-wise of course) I know that this should be asked only to a doctor, but my doctor is not very receptive to answering my questions and I don't see him again for six months. Asked by Lanette Salser 1 year ago.

It's really up to you, carbatrol didn't work for me. Alcohol acts the same as a narcotic which these are. So in a way you'd just be adding to them. However, Champagne on New Years Eve (a toast) I don't see the harm. I don't do it because I've developed a dislike of liquor. If the epilepsy isn't bad, I don't see the harm of drinking in moderation. Answered by Robbyn Brueggemann 1 year ago.

Well, drinking a large amount of alcohol will definitely not be good, most likely causing an epileptic seizure. In small amounts, alcohol does not cause seizures. But I'm not sure how it would react with your medications.. Hope this helps. Answered by Samual Sieger 1 year ago.

My wife found out--to her horror and surprise--that her mom was prone to epileptic seizures. Once she was on the medication, my wife immediately took her mom off the wine and cigarettes, cold turkey. It wasn't a fun two months, but the lady hasn't had a relapse. Answered by Annalee Devane 1 year ago.


Carbatrol and Adderall?
I have been taking these drugs for two months and i haven't gotten my period. Do either of these affect your cycle. (i'm not pregnant) Asked by Ali Tapp 1 year ago.

Neither of these drugs list missed periods as a side effect, but anything is possible. You'd have to speak with your doctor to be sure. Carbatrol can lessen the effectiveness of some birth control pills and it can alter pregnancy test results. And it is also harmful to the developing fetus. I'd definitely talk to your doctor if you haven't had a period in 2 months. Answered by Gertha Slama 1 year ago.


Can the medicine Carbatrol give you negative home pregnancy tests?
I have heard it has but I am not quite sure Asked by Jamey Keasley 1 year ago.

Speak to a doctor. Very few people on this site would know what exactly carbatrol is and what it does to the body. Unless it's somehow suppressing hCG (human chorionic gonadotrophin hormone) or effecting fertility so you can't get pregnant, I doubt it. Answered by Winston Carias 1 year ago.

Ive been wanting to try fake weed but am afraid to because im on a medication called Carbatrol and i wasnt sure of the side effects of smoking fake weed with Carbatrol or if i could die possibly, i would appreciate the help thank you. Asked by Ana Mcdorman 1 year ago.

If you are using carbatrol means that you must have some problems with your health already, it also could mean many other things. Drinking, smoking, drugs, any of these mixed with carbatrol wont have deadly affects on you. Carbatrol is made to be mixed with other drugs, mixing it with marijuana will not cause additional effects to you body. Carbatrol use is actually more dangerous then the smoking of marijuana. By saying this I'm not influencing you to try, but mixing Carbamazepine and marijuana is not dangerous. (well, it doesn't add additional risks, its also possible that carbatrol lowers the risks that weed can have on a person) You can read these sources to confirm the information i provided you: Answered by Coletta Fontelroy 1 year ago.

I used to take carbatrol for epilepsy and I have been noticing that in all of the pictures of me during that?
Time my smile wasn't like it usually was. I guess I'm asking if carbatrol can affect your smile? It made me look unhappy all the time. Asked by Hermine Shutters 1 year ago.

Carbatrol was one of the several seizure meds they put me on. I forget why that medicine didn't work. I just remember, some of the reactions I had were very, very bad. I got pulled off of one medicine *instantly*, which was *very* unusual. That just shows you how weird some of my reactions were. Now I'm on Dilantin and Topamax. It's not perfect, but I'm stable enough to live a life. I'm on a high enough dose to probably put most adults under the table. I can't go near alcohol. Answered by Rickie Rycroft 1 year ago.


Is it safe to take ecstasy w/ Carbatrol?
gee wonder why I'm asking? Asked by Simon Rehmann 1 year ago.

I have like 6 ex pills that I was planning on taking before I had bad thoughts and was prescribed Carbatrol. Was wondering if it was safe to take ecstasy while Carbatrol is in my system. Carbatrol is a mood stabilizer. I know ecstasy is not safe in the first place but does it have bad interactions with mood stabilizers? Answered by Louie Bohorquez 1 year ago.

Carbatrol has the highest potential for drug interactions through liver enzymes. So probably, yes there would be interactions, and no, it's damned unsafe. God knows what having both in your brain itself would do. Bipolar and ecstasy is just a godawful combination. Answered by Alise Evancho 1 year ago.

well, the fabulous thing about street drugs like X is that you really have no idea what is going into them. A friend of mine had to go to the ER after taking X because she started to get really sick, vomiting, loss of consciousness, ect. Turns out the X had drain cleaner added, and it just about killed her. So, my advice is, no, it's not safe. Answered by Kortney Doman 1 year ago.

don't take them together, and when you do take the X, make sure that you have a tripsitter (babysitter) to watch you and keep you under control. this really helps a lot. Answered by Eustolia Googe 1 year ago.

ecstacy is mood altering and so is carbatrol. I wouldn't recommend combining. Think twice before killing yourself with street drugs. Answered by Kary Hauf 1 year ago.


How do you deal with your manic bi polar behavior? What medicine have you found best? I'm on carbatrol...?
for the most part I like this drug but I am still experincing outbursts of emotions that I know are not normal or healthy. Should the dose be increased? Asked by Christene Blaski 1 year ago.

Talk to your doctor. Yes, you may need your dose increased or something else added on. Carbatrol (Tegretol) tends to be a good med for dealing with the manic side. It's also okay with cycling. It's not the strongest for depression. All mentioned because you got bum info in the answer above. If it's working w/o serious side effects, stay with it. Also working with your pdoc is your best bet. I deal with it thru a combination of therapy and med adjustments. Finding the right cocktail takes time and it's an ongoing adjustment once you do (only less frequently and a lessor amount, at least for me). Living on a set sleep-wake schedule helps a lot as does regular exercise and eating well. Paying attention to my mood and calling my doc at first sign has proved to be smart, too. Of coures, friends and family relationships are important. I like working and living a normal life, too. Oh, right, my best med turned out to be polypharmacy with a high dose of Lithium, mid/lowish doses of Depakote and Lamictal, and a little bit of Seroquel. Answered by Hallie Yoakum 1 year ago.

I take Lamotrigine, Quetiapine, Ziprasidone, and, Aripiprazole. I was on Carbamazepine(Carbatrol) and it did absolutely nothing. I was on Topiramate and it made my mood swings horrible, I was severely manic for a week and then serverely depressed for two before I was finally taken off. I was on Oxcarbazepine and it induced seizures in me (ironically enough, I know). Everyone responds differently though. I would talk to your pdoc about switching the medication if it's not working, as (as my pdoc explained) you should be experiencing some benefit from the medication for the dose to be increased. Answered by Yadira Gehman 1 year ago.

Carbatrol is not the 'gold standard' medication for treating bipolar disorder. You might want to talk with your physician about a med adjustment. Have you considered lithium? Lithium is generally the MOST effective med in treating bipolar. It is also the most effective in controlling the upswing (mania), whereas a med like carbatrol is more effective in warding off the down (depression) aspect of bipolar. If not lithium, there are a ton of other mood-stabilizing agents that can be utilized (Tegretol, Triliptel, Depakote, etc.) Answered by Donovan Briles 1 year ago.

I am currently taking Lamictal. I have tried several medications and I have found this one to be the best so far. I still have some outburst but they are nothing like they were. I have never taken Carbatrol so I'm not sure. Answered by Carmella Kulikowski 1 year ago.


I'm on 2 medicines for epilepsy- lexapro and carbatrol. Do I need to stay dry forever?
(alcohol-wise of course) I know that this should be asked only to a doctor, but my doctor is not very receptive to answering my questions and I don't see him again for six months. Asked by Sherilyn Hutchcraft 1 year ago.

It's really up to you, carbatrol didn't work for me. Alcohol acts the same as a narcotic which these are. So in a way you'd just be adding to them. However, Champagne on New Years Eve (a toast) I don't see the harm. I don't do it because I've developed a dislike of liquor. If the epilepsy isn't bad, I don't see the harm of drinking in moderation. Answered by Brandy Breazeale 1 year ago.

Well, drinking a large amount of alcohol will definitely not be good, most likely causing an epileptic seizure. In small amounts, alcohol does not cause seizures. But I'm not sure how it would react with your medications.. Hope this helps. Answered by Gary Moyse 1 year ago.

My wife found out--to her horror and surprise--that her mom was prone to epileptic seizures. Once she was on the medication, my wife immediately took her mom off the wine and cigarettes, cold turkey. It wasn't a fun two months, but the lady hasn't had a relapse. Answered by Ardis Vanwagoner 1 year ago.


Carbatrol and Adderall?
I have been taking these drugs for two months and i haven't gotten my period. Do either of these affect your cycle. (i'm not pregnant) Asked by Natisha Ogle 1 year ago.

Neither of these drugs list missed periods as a side effect, but anything is possible. You'd have to speak with your doctor to be sure. Carbatrol can lessen the effectiveness of some birth control pills and it can alter pregnancy test results. And it is also harmful to the developing fetus. I'd definitely talk to your doctor if you haven't had a period in 2 months. Answered by Diedra Filip 1 year ago.


Can the medicine Carbatrol give you negative home pregnancy tests?
I have heard it has but I am not quite sure Asked by Gianna Terzo 1 year ago.

Speak to a doctor. Very few people on this site would know what exactly carbatrol is and what it does to the body. Unless it's somehow suppressing hCG (human chorionic gonadotrophin hormone) or effecting fertility so you can't get pregnant, I doubt it. Answered by Lasonya Newhard 1 year ago.
