I was recently switched to Tegretol and am still slowly ramping up. On Wednesday I started taking it 3x/day and started getting heart palps. I have high blood pressure that is now controlled but it took a very long time to get here. I used to get a lot of heart palps during this uncontrolled period but I haven't had them in a very very long time. I'm now having them countless times a day - especially after I take the Teg.
Has anyone experienced this on Tegretol? Is this a side effect of the med and should I be worried? Or will my body adjust? I get my blood levels checked next Wed and then see my neuro on the 30th so I didn't want to call and bug him for every little thing unless this was a particular side effect that wasn't normal.
Thanks for any help!
