What is Carbamazepine?

Carbamazepine is an anticonvulsant drug that is administered in oral form for the treatment of epilepsy, bipolar disorder, and trigeminal neuralgia (a specific seizure caused as a result of epilepsy). For more information on the pathology of trigeminal neuralgia, please click here [external link].  It has also been used as a mood stabiliser and for treatment of neuropathic pain syndrome. Carbamazepine reduces abnormal electrical signals between nerve cells through blocking the sodium currents throughout the brain and the body. The side effects of toxicity as a result of an incorrect dosage can include breathing difficulties, hallucinations, seizures, blurred vision, vomiting, slurred speech, and drowsiness. In 2014, the American Association of Poison Control Centres reported 3734 toxic exposures.
