Tegretol and Benzos...anyone?


Recommended Posts

Hi

I've been on a big, nasty dose of Tegretol (1200 mg) for BP I rapid cycling for nine months and with my new pdoc, I've finally been prescribed a benzo, Ativan .5 mg, as needed for anxiety and out-and-out panic attacks. I can double it if necessary. The thing is, I know that Tegretol can eat up all kinds of meds by making them metabolize too much. Has anyone else taken Tegretol with a benzo and had trouble with it not working? I guess I'm getting nervous in advance. lol I don't want to get stuck with yet another panic attack and take my new Ativan and have nothing happen.

Thanks in advance to anyone who's in the same boat...

I'm on Tegretol and take clonazepam prn, sometimes quite a bit of it. I had to take more clonazepam than previous to get the same effect since starting on the Tegretol. But yeah, I'm fine really.
