Carbamazepine Medication Information

Carbamazepine (Carbatrol®, Epitol®, Equetro®, Tegretol®) is approved for a wide variety of uses, among them:
 
These drugs are not interchangeable. Just because Carbatrol and Tegretol contain carbamazepine does not mean they are used to treat the same conditions. Equetro is approved to treat bipolar disorder only, while Carbatrol, Epitol, Tegretol, and generic carbamazepine are approved to treat epilepsy and trigeminal neuralgia, but not bipolar disorder.
 
Carbamazepine comes in several different forms, including tablets, chewable tablets, extended-release tablets, extended-release capsules, and suspension (liquid). The medicine is taken by mouth, usually two to four times daily, depending on the particular product.
