  • From this study (3 weeks ago):

  • I started taking Tegretol within a month of childbirth for symptoms of depression and irritability. I sought treatment. I informed my doctor that I had been diagnosed in the past as bipolar and post traumatic stress disorder. Most of my doctors had only recommended psychotherapy with no medication. I was only given medication when I insited that I needed something so I could concentrate on work, school,etc.this was only after a traumatic experience in my life.Back then it had been anti-depressants and a 15 day supply of xanax. I had results with Tegretol in the past at 100mg, when I tried it a year before when I was out of the country at a doctors suggestion. Anyway, I explained this and the current treating doctor gave me Tegretol. At first I was given 100mg 2xdaily, which the doctor increased to 200mg. I did not tolerate that dosage well. I experienced interruptions with sleep; and extreme fatigue, sensory dullness and facial muscle tightening so much so that my friends told me that I don't need to take that medicine; as they were concerned for me.I informed my doctor and he placed me back on 100mg. I discontinued use for one month due to religious fasting. My doctor had me taper off a half dose and then go off the medication for the month. After that month I recontinued use but did not gradually increase as I had not seen my doctor again. I went back on at full dosage, and experienced paranoia and irritability. I was later hospitalized for psychosis.
