The anticonvulsant or anti-epileptic drug, Tegretol, is a medicine which is used to treat a specific type of seizures such as partial, tonic-clonic and mixed. Nerve pains such as trigeminal neuralgia and glossopharyngeal neuralgia can be treated by this medication. The nerve stimulations that cause seizures and pain can be decreased by the use of Tegretol.
It works by decreasing the growth of seizure activity, that happens in the brain, and reinstates the normal balance of the nerve activity in the brain. Its chewable tablets are available of 100 mg, tablets of 200 mg, XR tablets of 100, 200, and 400 mg.
