This is the second time in my life I have been put on carbamazepine. The first time I experienced dizziness until I was at my max dosage, this then eased off. Then the only lasting side effect I was left with was a recurring rash on my left foot.
This time however, I've noticed two things that correlate with the timing of starting this drug. The first is what I call 'pastel vision'. Every now and again the colours I see turn into weak pastel shades - as if I was looking through a haze.
The second thing is that I have trouble spelling subconsiously - something that has never been a problem to me before now. I will look through something I have typed and find error after error.
Does anyone else find these?
