Discussions that mention zonegran

Epilepsy board

My doctor prescribed carbamazaphine for me after I was first diagnosed with Epilepsy at the age of 13. When I turned 22 my new neurologist agreed to take me off of carb. and place me on a medicine that did not make me so tired. So, for the past 3 years I've been taking Zonegran. Since I have been off of Carb. I have lost a ton of weight, my periods are irregular, and I have a serious case of adult acne. I was wondering if Carb. has any connection to the symptoms that I'm experiencing now. If anyone knows of something like this I would love to hear from you.
