Red face Did I already ask where's the CARBATROL???

OK folks, I'm gonna keep asking until I get a better answer than "it's on back order"...Tegretol XR is making my brain hurt! Any answers out there? Help!

Re: Did I already ask where's the CARBATROL???

I tried searching and came up blank on news for it.

No links I could find, no text on websites or news sites. Usenet is the only place I have not checked for possible news. Nothing of mfgr's news site. Epilepsy Foundation didn't even have a peep about it.

I remember when Novartis had the problem with tegxr and they were down to one production line (was it 1 year ago already?) it lasted over 6 MONTHS. I was being given the 100's for a couple of months. Others were changed to Carbatrol to help lighten the demand for TegXR.

Hello and thanx to you both for responding: Gee I feel like an old woman on this stuff! I never realized it! Joint pain, absolutely. Tegretol XR makes my head throb when the time comes to take it and about an hour after I take it. It just feels all gummy and cruddy in the ol' ******'. Carbatrol while ghastly expensive has a much smoother time release and I only notice it when I've gone too long between doses ( makes me have a fine tremoring all over like I'm extremely cold) I take it for partials. Tegretol XR hits me like a teen-aged boy in a pillow fight. THUMP!
I've gone so far as to call Shire's customer service number and ask what the deal is and they very nicely said they're on back order. BLAH!
