domovoi Posted June 20, 2011 Share Posted June 20, 2011 i take tegretol, which is gotta be the most annoying med for interactions. it lowers plasma levels of everything else i take. so i had a question, for which i will use an example: according to med checker and NIH data, 400 mg of tegretol lower the plazma concentration of 30 mg abilify by 70%. recommendation: double the abilify. the way i understand it, if i take 400 mg of tegretol with 30 mg abilify, that means that i'm actually taking, like 15 mg abilify. right? what if i take 1200 mg tegretol and 10 mg abilify, like in my sig? does that still mean that i'm absorbing half the abilify that i take? even though it's not the same ratio of dosages? in my case, the dose of tegretol is much higher and the dose of abilify is much lower than in the example above. does that mean the tegretol decreases abilify plasma levels by even larger percentage? thanks.
