What is Tegretol XR?

Tegretol XR is a brand name of the anticonvulsant carbamazepine ER in tablet form, a dibenzazepine carboxamide that is used to control certain types of seizures in those with epilepsy, as well as the nerve pain associated with trigeminal neuralgia, diabetic neuropathy, and other conditions. It may also be prescribed for the treatment of bipolar disorder. Tegretol XR’s effectiveness rests in its ability to decrease the nerve impulses responsible for seizures and pain.
