... How many of you on carbamezepine have experienced weight gain? ... (4 replies)
... I should clarify that the deficiency has been associated with valporic acid (Depakote, Depakote Sprinkles). L-Carnitine has be effective in countering the drug toxicity that can occur with valporic acid AND carbamezepine (Tegretol, Carbatrol) use. (6 replies)
... Carnitine may offer protection against Valporic Acid and carbamezepine drug toxicity. ... (6 replies)

... I'm pretty sure Tegretol caused weight gain for me. I don't know if I'm remembering it right, but I believe when I went on Tegretol, I slowly gained 10-15 lbs. Then my doctor added Keppra, and I lost what I had gained. And then my doctor increased my Tegretol again, and I gained 15 lbs since then (about 4 years ago). ...Although my Keppra was increased a couple years ago, and... (4 replies)
... Well that certainly makes a difference too it developing into fat cells! But neither is very nice............ (4 replies)
... I've been on Tegretol for most of 20+ years, and it has had no influence on my weight. Ironically, the brief stint on Topamax (which I will never go on again) caused a 15 pound weight gain in a month. I'm not amused. Everybody responds to stuff differently. It could be that going off of the Topamax could be the culprit....I didn't gain weight on it (was too dopey to eat),... (4 replies)
... I did gain! And believe me, I gained a lot! But Tegretol is supposedly to be weight neutral, so it is very individual! I can only say that the weight gain, compared to the gain on Depakine is far less! But don't know if that is any help to you! (4 replies)

... When I inquired about carnitine supplementation our wonderful female neurologist said that typically only children 2 years and under experience deficiencies but tested my 12 year old son's levels anyway. Just another reminder of how important it is to do one's own research and honor intuition. By the way, the L-Carnitine supplement "Carnitor" has been classified by the FDA... (6 replies)
... Interesting...our daughter was on Tegretol (carbamezapine) for 11 years (ages 18 months-12) and never knew about the amino acid deficiency. Also didn't know that female AED users should take extra FOLIC ACID for the proper support of egg production and to help prevent birth defects. Found that out 2 years ago when we found a fantastic new FEMALE Epileptologist. Women... (6 replies)
... Good! It took 3 years and 4 neurologists until my son had valid test results and was put on the proper medication. Doctors make mistakes. (6 replies)
... Yeah I had to ask my son's neuro for the L-Carnitine. He never offered it. Thank God my son is getting another neuro. Thanks for the info! (6 replies)
... Hi there. I was on Dilantin for a few years, not good. I was depressed, tired, felt overwhelmed very easily. I have been on carbamezepine for about 5 years now. I have not had a seizure in 4 years and would say I feel pretty good. ... (12 replies)
