Hi,

Just wondering if anyone else is currently taking tegretol or has had any experience of taking it while dieting?

I've been taking it since November 08 for partial seizures, I know that it has other uses apart from epilepsy such as trigeminal neuralgia and depression. When I started talking it I put on about 20 lbs in a very short amount of time, but I've only just got it together to try and lose it!

I really want to know if anyone has had trouble losing weight while taking it, I'm easily discouraged so if I don't lose weight I'd probably give up quickly, but if I knew it was the tegretol slowing me down I'd more than likely keep at it. The list of side effects goes on for ages, so I was suprised difficulty losing weight wasn't on there!

Thanks
