Headache after stopping generic Tegretol XR?

The day after I stopped it (yesterday) I felt foggy, tired and lightheaded, which my doctor said was expected, but the headache was gone. Late last night it came back, and has lasted ever since. My doctor said it would take several days to get out of my system, can that be why I have the headache again?

What is the percentage of birth-control pill effectiveness when taken with carbamazepine (Tegretol XR)?
Asked by Berry Tagge 1 year ago.

Carbamazepine will increase the rate which your liver metabolizes your birth control pills. It\s not possible to know exactly what percentage it lowers it by, in your specific case or in any specific case. Carbamazepine slowly induces the enzymes in your liver (that metabolize it, and other things) so it's partially dependent on how long you've been on it (the effect takes a few days to get going). Most likely you've been on it awhile though. The degree of your own body's reaction to the induction of these enzymes cannot be known without actually running tests. Medicine is not an exact science. Below is from drugdigest.org: CONTRACEPTIVES, ORAL (in Ethinyl Estradiol and Levonorgestrel, Ethinyl Estradiol and Norgestimate, Ethinyl Estradiol and Norgestrel) may interact with CARBAMAZEPINE (in Tegretol) Carbamazepine may increase the rate at which oral contraceptives are removed from the body. This may result in contraceptive failure and an unintended pregnancy. If you are taking carbamazepine, your doctor may choose to use an oral contraceptive product that contains a high dose of estrogen and progestin. Consider using other methods of contraception, if necessary. You may want to ask your healthcare provider about this potential interaction if you think you are having problems. This interaction is poorly documented and is considered moderate in severity. Answered by Mariam Denslow 1 year ago.

I'm getting it has to do with pain..and it's a special kind of pain reliever..or something. Is that what it means? If so what is so special about this type of pain?

Answered by Shiloh Iorio 1 year ago.

Trigeminal Neuralgia is a disease of a certain nerve in your face called the trigeminal nerve, in which patients basically have episodes of intense pain in their eyes, lips, nose, scalp, forehead, and jaw. The areas of pain are so sensitive, that even a little bit of air can cause an episode of pain. Things like brushing your teeth or shaving can also trigger an attack. The pain usually feels like a severe electric shock or a burning sensation. Tegretol XR decreases impulses in your nerves that cause pain and seizures, so yes, if you've been taking it for a while it would increase your pain tolerance. Answered by Londa Malueg 1 year ago.

Taking it for bipolar disorder? trigeminal neuraligia is basically a pain syndrome. It is pain in the distribution of the trigeminal nerve which is in the face.

Trigeminal Neuralgia is pain in the nerves that feed one side of your face.

It doesn't do anything for me. Answered by Porsche Slayman 1 year ago.

I have had Trigeminal neuralgia for 3 years. When I was first diagnosed the Doctor put me on 600 mg of Gabapentin 3 timers a day. I had some relief but no entirely.

Within a hour of taking it again the pain went away. Ask your Doctor to try it if what you are taking isn't working. Answered by Krysten Mangon 1 year ago.

Go to the Mayo Clinic in Rochester, Mn. My father had TN and he would get "blocks" (not too much worse than a shot) periodically. They would work for a while (years), but every time he went back they had a newer treatment, that was not that traumatic (nothing like severing the nerve) The side effects were very minor. Also, they are probably cheaper than your local hospital and doctors. He was treated there for 20 years before he passed away at 93. P.S. Tegretol and Neurontin can cause lupus type side effects which will report positive for lupus even though you do not have the disease. I thought they were harmful.

Some medications supress red blood cell production in your body, leading to anemia which is a lower than normal red blood count. It is difficult to get off tegretol since there aren't a lot of drugs to take it's place. Just take the Ferrous sulfate as directed and no - 364 mg is a normal daily dose. It can go up from there in milligrams, depending on your body's response. Answered by Stephania Lewars 1 year ago.

Some medications supress red blood cell production in your body, leading to anemia which is a lower than normal red blood count. It is difficult to get off tegretol since there aren't a lot of drugs to take it's place. Just take the Ferrous sulfate as directed and no - 364 mg is a normal daily dose. It can go up from there in milligrams, depending on your body's response. Answered by Asa Ieng 1 year ago.

I'd taken generic Tegretol XR (Carbamazepine ER) at 200MG for two weeks as a mood stabilizer, and had to stop it two nights ago because it was causing horrible side effects for me, the most significant being a consistent migraine/headache that lasted the whole time I was on it. The day after I stopped it (yesterday) I felt foggy, tired and lightheaded, which my doctor said was expected, but the headache was gone. Late last night it came back, and has lasted ever since. My doctor said it would take several days to get out of my system, can that be why I have the headache again? I'm hoping that's the case, but I'm starting to worry now that there is something else going on and the medication wasn't actually the culprit. Any insight is appreciated! :( Thanks in advance.

What is the percentage of birth-control pill effectiveness when taken with carbamazepine (Tegretol XR)?
Asked by Barry Sclafani 1 year ago.

Carbamazepine will increase the rate which your liver metabolizes your birth control pills. It\s not possible to know exactly what percentage it lowers it by, in your specific case or in any specific case. Carbamazepine slowly induces the enzymes in your liver (that metabolize it, and other things) so it's partially dependent on how long you've been on it (the effect takes a few days to get going). Most likely you've been on it awhile though. The degree of your own body's reaction to the induction of these enzymes cannot be known without actually running tests. Medicine is not an exact science. Below is from drugdigest.org: CONTRACEPTIVES, ORAL (in Ethinyl Estradiol and Levonorgestrel, Ethinyl Estradiol and Norgestimate, Ethinyl Estradiol and Norgestrel) may interact with CARBAMAZEPINE (in Tegretol) Carbamazepine may increase the rate at which oral contraceptives are removed from the body. This may result in contraceptive failure and an unintended pregnancy. If you are taking carbamazepine, your doctor may choose to use an oral contraceptive product that contains a high dose of estrogen and progestin. Consider using other methods of contraception, if necessary. You may want to ask your healthcare provider about this potential interaction if you think you are having problems. This interaction is poorly documented and is considered moderate in severity. Answered by Daphine Heverly 1 year ago.

Answered by Zenobia Sturner 1 year ago.

Trigeminal Neuralgia is a disease of a certain nerve in your face called the trigeminal nerve, in which patients basically have episodes of intense pain in their eyes, lips, nose, scalp, forehead, and jaw. The areas of pain are so sensitive, that even a little bit of air can cause an episode of pain. Things like brushing your teeth or shaving can also trigger an attack. The pain usually feels like a severe electric shock or a burning sensation. Tegretol XR decreases impulses in your nerves that cause pain and seizures, so yes, if you've been taking it for a while it would increase your pain tolerance. Answered by Luanne Medick 1 year ago.

Trigeminal Neuralgia is pain in the nerves that feed one side of your face.

I have had Trigeminal neuralgia for 3 years. When I was first diagnosed the Doctor put me on 600 mg of Gabapentin 3 timers a day. I had some relief but no entirely.

Within a hour of taking it again the pain went away. Ask your Doctor to try it if what you are taking isn't working. Answered by Ouida Monforte 1 year ago.

Go to the Mayo Clinic in Rochester, Mn. My father had TN and he would get "blocks" (not too much worse than a shot) periodically. They would work for a while (years), but every time he went back they had a newer treatment, that was not that traumatic (nothing like severing the nerve) The side effects were very minor. Also, they are probably cheaper than your local hospital and doctors. He was treated there for 20 years before he passed away at 93. P.S. Tegretol and Neurontin can cause lupus type side effects which will report positive for lupus even though you do not have the disease. I thought they were harmful.
