Carbamazepine

Carbamazepine

Anyone have any experience switching off carbatrol to lamictal? Did you have seizures? They want me off 200 mg a week. Off in 4 weeks and building up on lamictal now before cutting carbatrol.

I have been on it for almost 14 years and all my bloodwork has been fine. I haven't had a grand mal seizure since I started taking it.
