I started taking Tegretol a few months back and have been increasing my dose gradually under my drs care. This med does have the usual side effects dizziness, tiredness etc which can be pretty intense but what I'm concerned about is as soon as I started taking this med I got a really sore throat and started to have trouble swallowing. My dr seemed to brush this off as some sort of acid reflux even I don't suffer from acid reflux and gave me a giant bottle of gaviscon. As I am increasing the meds my throat is getting more painful, harder to swallow and I am getting earache as my glands are very painful also. I have read the side effects sheet and it says this is a bad reaction but surely my dr wouldn't be keeping me on it if that was the case? Any advice would be great as I feel horrendous. Xx
