Tegretol® (carbamazepine) is a drug that is approved to control seizures in people with epilepsy. The prescription medication is also licensed to treat trigeminal neuralgia, a painful nerve disorder. Tegretol is believed to work by blocking sodium channels in the brain, as well as nerve signals that cause pain. It is available as a tablet (both immediate-release and extended-release forms) and as a liquid. Typically, it is taken two to four times a day.
Tegretol is not appropriate for everyone. For example, people with anemia, glaucoma, heart disease, or liver disease may not be able to safely take it. In addition, side effects are possible; commonly reported ones include dizziness, nausea, and vomiting.
