schrodinger on Oct, 4, 2011:
I took carbamezapine (brand name Tegretol) and had CNS/ auditory disturbance... ototoxicity. Was unstable in balance, and almost lost my hearing. As a musician and radio operator, this was TOTALLY unacceptable, and the loss of balance was unsafe. Had to discontinue and can never take this drug again.
