Hello ace-rick. Ha! Like that new look, your avatar :-0) In answer to your question... I can't answer you. A few ideas. But nothing set in stone. Four drugs that I was once upon a time on. Stelazine, mellerail, haldol, nozanan, were and still are prescribed to combat schizophrenia. Stelazine and mellerail, are also used to fight anxiety. Not haldol, its used solely in the treatment for schizophrenia. My diagnosis back then, which hasn't changed throughout my life is a major depression/general anxiety/ocd. Ok, thinking out loud here, why did the above drugs, which in those days, seemed to help me, were they ever prescibed to me. Aside from the anxiety, those medications had nothing in common with my illness. I have an idea, there must be a chemical, within each of these medications, that will, say combat my depression. I don't work in a lab, (yet) :-0) Its similiar to abilify, which is all over the tv channels, being used as a combination in with another anti-depreesant that one is currently taking. Why does it seem to work? or work? So thats my experience, and as I said from the onset, just my idea or putting it more scientifically theory. Have a great week-end ace-rick, coffee is on the stove, couple of the dogs snoring away, and I'm going watch some serious golf this afternoon. Best of wishes.
Just wanted to try and explain why Tegretol has so many interactions. It actually speeds up the liver and causes medicines to be metabolized faster thus lowering there effectiveness in most cases. This is particularly signficant with medicines like coumadin and birth control pills. There is a good explanation of this on the following website:
Hope this helps,
