I realize this answer is very, very late but may help someone in future.
It takes 5.5 x elimination half lifes for a medicine to be cleared from ones system. The elimination half life of Tegretol varies depending on whether it is initial dose or repeated dosing.
Initial half-life values range from 25-65 hours, decreasing to 12-17 hours on repeated doses. Tegretol is metabolized in the liver.
If you had been taking Tegretol for a while then the expected time for Tegretol to clear from your system would be approximately 93.5 hours (5.5 x 17 hours).
