Tegretol controlled my seizures.

Regret due to low sodium levels which it is known to do, I was weaned off it in June, 2019. 

I am now on Vimpat.

I was always satisfied with Tegretol as far as control of my seizures was concerned.

I was weaned off this medication due to low sodium (low salt) in my blood results. 

I am now on Vimpat.

Tegretol has done me well for over 30 years now! It has controlled my tonic clonic seizures, and partial seizures to a certain extent. 

Regret due to low sodium now in my blood results, which the Neurologist and my Doctor put down to Tegretol, I have now changed to a newer medication.

One is always nervous when changing medications, but Tegretol worked!
