Tegretol (Carbamazepine Tablets) used
Tegretol (Carbamazepine Tablets) are used to treat a variety of neurological conditions, primarily to control seizures in several forms of epilepsy, ranging from partial to generalized tonic-clonic seizures; although they are not effective in forms of epilepsy that do not have seizures (absence and myoclonic). Tegretol (Carbamazepine Tablets) can be used to treat epilepsy as first line therapy or in patients who have not responded to other antiepileptic drugs. Tegretol (Carbamazepine Tablets) are used to control neuropathic (nerve) pain, including idiopathic (of unknown cause) trigeminal neuralgia (pain originating from the trigeminal nerve in the face) and trigeminal neuralgia due to multiple sclerosis, idiopathic glossopharyngeal neuralgia (severe pain in the tongue, throat, ear, and tonsils) and diabetic neuropathy. Other uses for Tegretol (Carbamazepine Tablets) include treatment of bipolar disorder, alcohol-withdrawal syndrome and to help control extreme thirst and urine production in diabetes, caused by a neurohormone (hormone produced by a nerve cell). Tegretol (Carbamazepine Tablets) helps treat these different conditions working through a common mechanism to relieve symptoms.
Tegretol (Carbamazepine Tablets) work
Tegretol (Carbamazepine Tablets) contain carbamazepine, an anticonvulsant with neurotropic (affecting nerves) and psychotropic (affecting the brain to cause mood alteration) actions. Carbamazepine in Tegretol (Carbamazepine Tablets) regulates nerve function by acting directly on nerve cells to stabilise the nerve membranes and “calm down” nerves that have become hyperexcited (overactive in sending out nerve signals) and inhibits the repetitive firing and transmission of excitatory nerve messages, which reduces the impulses that cause seizures and pain. It is thought that the neurotropic action of Tegretol (Carbamazepine Tablets) that prevent repetitive firing of nerve messages may be due to the blocking action of carbamazepine on the sodium channels in nerve cell membranes that control the flow of sodium ions, which triggers the nerve cell to send out a nerve impulse. The psychotropic effect of Tegretol (Carbamazepine Tablets) are thought to be due to the suppression by carbamazepine of the neurotransmitters (chemicals that allow nerve cells to communicate) dopamine and noradrenaline.
