Course Summary

Carbamazepine is an anti-seizure medication that has other uses than for the treatment of epilepsy. Patients who are treated with carbamazepine are often prescribed other medications in combination depending on the primary symptoms being treated. For this reason, monitoring anticonvulsant medications closely through laboratory testing and by patient observation is a necessary aspect of ongoing clinical care. Carbamazepine is considered effective as monotherapy and adjunctive therapy for symptom control by both neurology and psychiatry medical sections.
