Have you already been prescribed carbamazepine?
What do you think about this treatment? Has it been useful to you? What about side effects?
Thank you in advance for sharing!

I have been on Carbamazepine for over over 25 years... It has helped my epilepsy and controlled my tonic clonic seizures.
Obviously, dosages have to be sorted which can be a complicated and tiring business; once sorted it has worked for me.
Tiredness, memory loss are 2 of the main side effects.

I've been on Carbamazepine for over 20 years. And up to now it controls my epilepsy completely. I have grand mals.
I came off them a while when trying for my son 22 years ago and started having fits again. So went back on them.
Tiredness, lack of energy and memory loss. The same as Les. But rather that than the fits again.
