Question Help - I'm new here!

Hi -
I'm new to this site and I was wondering if anyone can help. Last November, my mother had a "seizure" 2 days in a row. She was not admitted to the hospital but was in the ER. She was released with the doctors saying she didn't have a real seizure and it was her combination of blood pressure meds that caused the "fainting spell". Well, this Saturday (2 months later) she had another "fainting spell" and was taken to the er by ambulance. This time she was finally admitted. After 3 days of tests the doctors are pretty sure she has a form of epilepsy that affects only 1/2 of the brain during a seizure. The neurologist put her on Tegratol. Does anyone know about the side affects of this medication? Is there a website on tegratol?

Please help if you can!

Thanks - mistress pootwell
