My son is on 7 mg of tegretol daily. We have just gone to the paediatrician for learning issues and where prescribed Ritalin . This drug is listed on the mims as not being able to be mixed. The doctor has said there will be no issue. Has anyone combined these 2 drugs in a similar situation?
I had to stop taking tegretol suddenly due to liver inflammation. I now have significant olfactory problems. Will this go away when I am over the withdrawal? Would it help to start taking a bit again so the withdrawal isn't so sudden?
Have experienced severe paradoxical reactions while taking benzodiazepines, specifically only Restoril and Xanax produces these effects. Have engaged in dissociative behaviors where detached emotionally from others and have experiences of kleptomania
