Re: Epilepsy-Increase in Tegretol, tired & unable to focus

That dosage seems high, but of course I don't know the details. It may be right for you.

I am on Carbatrol, which is similar to Tegretol, and my dosage is 400 mg 2x per day. My former drug was Dilantin, which has even more severe side effects than Carbatrol, so I feel mostly normal. The slight drowsiness I feel I compensate for with morning caffeine. I time my evening dose for a couple of hours before bedtime, so it helps me sleep.
