General Info

Tegrital® is an anticonvulsant medication with mood stabilizing properties. These tablets are used for tonic-clonic and partial seizures (fits) due to epilepsy, manic-depressive disorder, management of alcohol withdrawal symptoms, and paroxysmal pain associated with various forms of neuralgia. Formulated for adults and children over 5 years of age.

Tegrital®
Active Ingredient

Carbamazepine.

Description

Tegrital® is manufactured by Novartis. The active substance of these tablets is Carbamazepine, anticonvulsant structurally similar to tricyclic antidepressants.

Indications:

- management of epilepsy characterized by generalized tonic-clonic and partial seizures (do not confuse with absence or myoclonic seizures);

- paroxysmal (suddenly occurring) pain associated with trigeminal neuralgia, peripheral diabetic neuropathy, glossopharyngeal neuralgia, tabetic lightning pain, superior laryngeal neuralgia, stump pain, phantom limb pain, and post herpetic neuralgia;

- management of alcohol withdrawal symptoms;

- treatment and prophylaxis of mania and manic-depressive disorder (also known as bipolar disorder). Suitable for patients unresponsive to lithium.

Tegrital® is also used to decrease the urinary volume in patients with diabetes insipidus (do not confuse with diabetes mellitus or sugar diabetes) because of its antidiuretic effect.

MOA (mechanism of action):

Carbamazepine has a variety of activities, including anticonvulsant, anticholinergic, antidiuretic, antiarrhythmic, muscle relaxant, antidepressant, sedative, and neuromuscular-blocking. Primarily, it stabilizes the electrical activity in the brain and nerves. In particular, Carbamazepine prevents the electrical signals from building up in the brain and releases nerve-exciting agents (neurotransmitters), thereby preventing the occurrence of seizures. In patients suffering from neurology and other pain-causing disorders, Carbamazepine is thought to preventing the pain signals from being transmitted to the brain. The mood stabilizing effect of Carbamazepine may occur due to its ability to reduce the glutamate activity in the brain.
