Well I was on tegretol 7 years ago.......wow......long time now haha. And I had the usual sleepiness, feeling dizzy etc.
But then after a couple of weeks it wasn't just sleepy....i felt exhausted! and need long naps. Then I noticed a rash on my arms, nect, legs etc. however I thought this was a heat rash since I had spent a lot of time in the sun. Soon it spread everywhere, and looked like what u described. Tiny red dots EVERYWHERE, and bumps too! My friends thought it was gross hahahaha.
anyway, turns out it was an allergic reaction to the drug so I went off that. And all the symptoms disappeared. Do u have any others? I got lots of sores in my mouth too...they hurt a lot.
I was put on epival for about 4 years, but that didn't work. Now i'm on lamictal and it is working fine
Have u been to your doctor?
