11 days ago I started taking carbamazipine for mood regulation,and topamax 25 mgs 2 x daily for depression... I was just wondering how long either one takes to start working, thank you
Hi, Hazeleyes!! Both these medications are in the anticonvulsant class of drugs commonly prescribed for mood regulation and it may take about four weeks before you start feeling the effects, sooner if you're lucky.
Remember to abstain from alcohol and avoid grapefruit juice. Also, if you're female, they can interfere with systemic birth control methods so you might consider adding a barrier method while you're on these meds.
Best wishes and Happy Holidays! WCV
