Make sure that the doctor who prescribed it is doing blood toxicity tests at least every 3 weeks. It is EXTREMELY important -- if they refuse FIND ANOTHER P-DOC immediately!!

Have you gained weight on this medicine? I am only on 600 mg and also 4 mg of Klonopin (that last one and that dose since August of 2001) the Tegretol only for a month but have gained weight and the PDR says frequent side effects are the opposite of what I am experiencing.

It is far more important to get the Tegretol/Carmapezine blood levels every 3 weeks at first at least (for the first 3 months) -- if your doc blows you off -- go some where else!!!
