Firstly you should not stop Tegretol suddenly especially if you are taking it for seizure control as you risk developing status epilepticus.
You should talk with your doctor about the best way to come off tegretol.
You may need to taper your dose slowly.

I know it has been a long time. Are you still around? How long were you on tegretol? DId you have a weight gain with it? What made you decide to go off it? I am thinking about going on it as I had to go off of Seroquel which really controlled my seizures well for 8 yrs. but put 150 pounds on me up to 300 pounds. Now taking Topomax but causes me terrible bladder infections!
But I am loosing lots of weight!!!
Did you gain weight with Tegretol?
Thank you Antoinette
