Default Tegretol (carbamazepine)


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!
