: I just started taking tegretol yesterday for unnamed unknown seizures. I lose time. I don't have seizures like someone with epilepsy would but I will stare for up to an hour at a time. When I come to I am "lost." I have had an MRI and two EEG's that show siezuring activity in my brain. Anyone ever hear of this? I am taking 600 mg. of tegretol and am really curious about the side effects. Is this a high dose of tegretol?
: I have been reading the board and my problem seems simple compared to others. My heart goes out to all who have to deal with these medications.
: Thanks for your time.
My son was on tegeratol and had some interesting side effects. I must stress everyone is different. He hallucinated, had nightmares and was very sleepy. He is now on different meds. has not had any breakthrough seisures (with tegeratol he had them every few months with the dose rising) he has not hallucinated and is alot brighter. Just be aware and question your doctor if you are not feeling happy with the meds. Good luck.
