Tegretol can and will cause toxic hepatitis which in no time causes cirrosis which then come down to a liver transplant. When tegretol is prescrible the Dr. needs to run a test to see if you carry a certain enzyme. This is one perscription that can be deadly not only with toxic hepatitis but other deadly diseases also. Make sure if starting this prescription you are aware of the symtoms of liver failure or other diseases developing.

I have recently been diagnosed with trigeminal neuralgia and have just had my tegretol increased from 600 gr to 800 gr per day. How long will it take to start taking effect, as after 3 days it's no different? Also, does it mean I will have sudden weight gain?
