Tegratol is a moodstabaliserr
I was on Valproic Acid before. I think it is the same thing as Tegretol. It seemed real acidic to me. I didn’t stay on it long.
Like I said before, I was on Tegretol for decades.
It was not as effectve as Depakote was for me, but still a good, safe medcation.
carbamazepne (Tegretol) tends to lower other meds one is taking, so adjustments have to be made usually.
I am psyched myself, becuse I will be back on Depakote soon - this med saved my life in the past.
Best of luck with it @anon80629714
I have pcos so depokte was not an option
Tegretol controlled my minor mood swings and obsessive thoughts. It seemed to uplift me. But I discovered it was the cause of the nasty rash I had on my arms and I had to stop taking it.
Depakote is a better drug for males, so they say.
There are issues with PCOS and women tend to gain weight more on Depakote than males.
