There is a nerve on my face next to my nose which is extremely painful and is creating migraines. Will Tegretol help for this condition???
4 Jun 2010
Tegretol (carbamazepine) is a prescription medication used to treat the following conditions:
Epilepsy -- The medication is approved to treat various types of seizures, although it is usually not effective for treating absence seizures (petit mal seizures).
Trigeminal neuralgia -- Tegretol is also approved to treat pain associated with trigeminal neuralgia (also known as tic douloureux), a nerve condition that causes episodes of facial pain (typically cheek or jaw pain).
Perhaps not recommended for migraines, however you should talk to your doc./pharmacist for more info & help, all the best.
