About TEGRETOL SUSPENSION 100ML

TEGRETOL SUSPENSION 100ML belongs to a group of medicines called anticonvulsants or anti-epileptics used to treat epilepsy (fits) and trigeminal neuralgia (pain in the face's nerves). Epilepsy is a neurological disorder in which there is a sudden rush of electric impulse (electric activity) in the brain. As a result, the brain's electrical rhythms become imbalanced, resulting in recurrent episodes of seizures or fits. Trigeminal neuralgia is a condition which affects the trigeminal nerve that carries sensations from face to the brain. 

TEGRETOL SUSPENSION 100ML contains 'Carbamazepine' that reduces the electrical impulses and subsequent firing of the nerve impulses that cause fits. Thus, TEGRETOL SUSPENSION 100ML decreases the excessive and abnormal nerve activity in the brain, thereby controlling seizures. 

You are advised to take TEGRETOL SUSPENSION 100ML for as long as your doctor has prescribed it for you depending on your medical condition. In some cases, you may experience certain common side-effects such as dizziness, tiredness, uncontrolled movements, nausea, headache, changes in liver enzymes or low white blood cells count, and minor skin reactions. Most of these side-effects do not require medical attention and will resolve gradually over time. However, you are advised to talk to your doctor if you experience these side-effects persistently.

To treat your condition effectually, continue taking TEGRETOL SUSPENSION 100ML for as long as your doctor has prescribed. Please do not stop taking TEGRETOL SUSPENSION 100ML without consulting your doctor to avoid worsening of seizures. Do not take TEGRETOL SUSPENSION 100ML if you are pregnant or planning for pregnancy unless prescribed by the doctor as it could lead to serious congenital disabilities. It is safe to take TEGRETOL SUSPENSION 100ML while breastfeeding; however, consult your doctor immediately if you think that the baby is having side-effects like excessive sleepiness, skin reactions or yellowing of skin or eyes. TEGRETOL SUSPENSION 100ML causes drowsiness and dizziness, so drive only if you are alert. TEGRETOL SUSPENSION 100ML should not be given to children unless prescribed. Avoid consuming alcohol along with TEGRETOL SUSPENSION 100ML as it could lead to increased dizziness and sleepiness. Consult your doctor immediately if you experience suicidal tendencies.
