Glaucoma is a disease in which the optic nerve is damaged, leading to progressive, irreversible loss of vision. It is often, but not always, associated with increased pressure of the fluid in the eye.

You should talk with your Doctor prior to taking Tegretol (carbamazepine) if you have:

Glaucoma
Anemia or other blood disorders
Absence seizures (petit mal seizures)
Acute intermittent porphyria
Heart disease
An irregular heart rhythm (arrhythmia)
Thyroid problems
Liver disease, including liver failure, cirrhosis, or hepatitis
Kidney disease, including kidney failure (renal failure)
Any allergies, including allergies to food, dyes, or preservatives.
