User Comments about Tegretol
26 Nov 2015 I find Tegretol usefull, but only first 5 years. After that in my case Tegretol started to harm my liver and my brain and even my skin.

20 Dec 2012 I cannot take my full recommended dosage, which is already quite low, as the side effects feel too extreme. Sadly due to this I had a seizure, which was much milder.

05 Aug 2011 Tegreto has been effective for me because there are no side effects ever since I've taken it.

20 Sep 2010 I have started with Tegretol treatment since 2007. Its side effects were exacerbated at the begininig of the treatment (fatigue, headaches and dizziness), but ia m now used of these. In addition, I am taking drugs to reduce these side effects.
