cache-monkey Posted June 8, 2006 Share Posted June 8, 2006 Hey all, So, I'm on Klonopin (a little Lithium) and just started Tegretol. I know that theoretically the Tegretol should increase the clearance of Klonopin (through the CYP-3A4 enzyme). Which implies raising the dose of K to get the same oomph. But, Tegretol itself can increase GABA and is sometimes prescribed for benzo withdrawal. I think I've heard of people actually lowering their benzos after going on Tegretol, but I'd like to solicit any experiences. So, for any people who've started Teg wile on a (non-Ativan) benzo for anxiety: Did you end up adjusting your benzo dose? Up, down? Thanks, cache-monkey Link to comment Share on other sites More sharing options...
