Carbamazepine - Tegretol - Carbatrol - Epitol
Tegretol is indicated for use as an anticonvulsant drug. Evidence supporting efficacy of Tegretol as an
anticonvulsant was derived from active drug-controlled studies that enrolled patients with the following seizure
1. Partial seizures with complex symptomatology (psychomotor, temporal lobe). Patients with these seizures
appear to show greater improvement than those with other types.
2. Generalized tonic-clonic seizures (grand mal).
3. Mixed seizure patterns which include the above, or other partial or generalized seizures. Absence seizures
(petit mal) do not appear to be controlled by Tegretol.
