My father has trigeminal neuralgia disease. He is taking carbamazepine zeptol 400 mg tablet but there is no use of it. Pain is too much, it feels like a spark near ear. What should he do now. Is surgery a good option?

Hi Lybrate user. There are other tablets that can be added before going for surgery. And he can get a mri trigeminal nerve fiesta sequence done to decide if surgery is required for him.

It is an anti seizure medication and since under price control not easily available. It is safe to take that under medical supervision and regular tests. All the best.

Dear , zeptol (carbamazepine) is a teratogenic drug, that may harm the foetus. It is ok to take it now. You delay pregnancy by few years (5 years). By the time of pregnancy you may try gradually tapering and stopping it. If not possible few other safer anti-epileptic medicines like lamotrigine may be tried, although small risk of cleft palate is there, but no very serious risk.

My wife is taking tegrital (Carbamazepine) 200 mg daily, earlier she was taking 600 mg daily but gradually reduced to 200. This medicine she is taking since the age of 12 due to seizures, and now she is 46 years old. The last attach had happened almost 15 years ago, hence my question is that she will continue the medicine or should stop it.

You should talk to an epilepsy specialist before stopping it. The chances of seizure recurrence after stopping medications is about 50-50. Studying earlier Mris and repeating the eeg might help in predicting if she needs to continue taking medications.

Doctors generally begin by treating epilepsy with medication. If medications don't treat the condition, doctors may propose surgery or another type of treatment. Finding the right medication and dosage can be complex. At least half the people newly diagnosed with epilepsy will become seizure-free with their first medication. If anti-epileptic medications don't provide satisfactory results, doctor may suggest surgery or other therapies. You may need to discuss it in detail including the medical history and the treatment taken so far.
