Does Tegretol make you gain weight?

I'm coming off some weight gaining meds, does Tegretol make you gain weight?
Answers:    Hi Sandi P,
I saw your previous, question...
And, I feel I should answer this question, Sandi.
>>>>>>
Tell your doctor, about all the prescription and over-the-counter medications you use. This includes vitamins, minerals, herbal products, and drugs prescribed by other doctors. Do "not" start using a new medication, without telling your doctor. Keep a list with you.. of all the medicines you use.. and show this list to any doctor.. or other health-care provider who treats you..
>>>>>>>>
"Tegretol", is used to treat seizures.. and nerve pain, such as trigeminal neuralgia and diabetic neuropathy. Tegretol, is also used to treat bipolar disorder..
>>>>>>>
But, to your question, the answer is no, but then again : "every person reacts different, to medication".
>>>>>>
I advice you to see a doctor...to workout a plan, that is healthy... and not give YOU complications.of any kind.. !

That is my advice, Sandi.
Please don't try this.. or that.. and create a "vicous circle".!
>>>>>>>
Thanks, for the question! :)

*Have a Wonderful Easter Weekend* :-)

My regards!

Take care of yourself!

I didn't have any weight gain issues, but it might vary. I'd recommend http://www.rxlist.com and see if the side effect is listed there. Good luck!
