In reply to TEGRETOL, posted by Bob on October 5, 2001, at 16:15:28

Hi Bob. I just wanted to add something to what others have said. I'm taking Trileptal (oxcarbazepine) which is similar to Tegretol but is supposed to be safer and have milder side effects. I haven't found it sedating, but I'm not taking very much.

I know a bit about Tegretol and I also know some people who've taken it. It definitely can cause drowsiness and dizziness. It also seems to increase the effect of alcohol (based on my observation of a friend who takes it for TLE when she tried to have a drink!), so be careful there.
