... effect and starts working? Thanks
It depends not all organisms assimilate the drug in the same way, there are many factors that must be considred. How long has she been on it..if she has taken meds before she might have developed a high tolerance levels to the chemicals that make up the med, the age (eg for me it may take a wek or more or less and the other way around for your mum) I would say a week at least or less.
I also suggest you ask her Doctor.
I took Tegretol which is also carbamzepine, I have a high tolerance level to meds so for me it took a while but evnetually it worked , I do not remmember exactly how long it took.
Carbatrol is a long-acting medication that contains carbamazepine in three different types of beads, immediate-release beads (which work quickly), extended-release beads (which work slowly), and delayed-release beads (which work after a delay). These three types of beads help provide a consistent level of medication in your blood.
Best of wishes... froma caring induvidual.
