Tegretol Tablets is a multipurpose supplement, primarily used to control seizures in various forms of epilepsy, but can also be used to treat other types of neurological conditions. The tablets can be used for the initial treatment of epilepsy, or used in patients where other medication has failed.
Tegretol Tablets main ingredient, carbamazepine, acts on nerve cells to stabilise nerve membranes and relax nerve cells that are sending out excessive amounts of nerve signals.
This reduces the risk of seizures and pain caused by over-excited nerve cells.
Tegretol Tablets can also assist in the treatment of alcohol-withdrawal syndrome and bipolar disorder, and can help control some symptoms of diabetes.
