Can Carbamazepine alone treat seizures even after a seizure occurs while on it? I was on Carbamazepine for YEARS and recently, by mistake, drank alcohol and had a seizure. My doctor has since also put me on Keppra.
Happens to some people, albino liver, liver turns white, mine happened when I was 14 causes the body to reject alcohol
The carbamazepine effect is cancelled if you put alcohol in your veins. This drug demands that you don't drink. It will ask you to take all the alcohol out before it can work again. I have taken that drug for years, there is no way around it : wonderful drug but not a sip of alcohol. (Now if for my birthday I ignore the rule I know what to expect).
Im not sure. I know sometimes my doctor has me take an extra dose if I have a seizure
