Work weds (have cancelled tomorrow) and need to know if I can decrease carbatrol, as I got severe toxic effects of vomiting, double vision, loss of balance. What is the best /fastest way to get back to balance drugs so I will be functional weds. Can I decrease carbatrol by half until the lamictal half life decreases (Tom night) so I can function wo carbatrol side effects?
Oh lordy. When did you realize it? The best thing you could have done was get to the er for some activated charcoal to absorb it. Too late for that now. About all there is now is to drink water as much as you can tolerate and dilute and flush it. I don't think I'd take them tonight, you've already got too much in your system, but you could try calling your doc to check for sure. Poison control might be able to tell you. Their number is 1-800-222-1222.
And get yourself a pill box and use it. It will prevent the times you forget you took your meds and take them again.
