Tegretol Has Increased My Libido By 300%

Tegretol Has Increased My Libido By 300%

I was added Tegretol in February. Since seizures have declined but my sex drive has increased from once or twice a week to 3 or 4 times a day. Anyone else taking Tegretol have this happen?

I’ve been on Tegretol, Carbamazepine, and Carbatrol, which are all in the same family. They all can reduce your sex drive.

Tegretol /carbamazepin always made me sad, emotional . I was more happy when taken off of it.
