Hi all, just thought i'd put down how i'm feeling at the moment.

Feeling really strange, don't feel down just numb and emotionless, head feels empty of any thoughts. Just want to close my eyes and sleep for along time.

Hi Colin,

Are you going through a reduction of the carbamazepine and starting the new medication at the moment?

I am asking because I had to do this when I was coming off that particular medication (I went on to sodium valproate) and had similar symptoms to what you describe.
It lasted for around two days but it did get better I can assure you.

I hope you feel better soon.

Urgh - feel like a zombie, head is in the clouds.

No Medication changes as such. The only thing it could be is that i have had my anti-depressants re-adjusted back from 20mg to 40mg. I have a follow on appointment with my G.P so i will let him know the situation.

That could cause the change -it's still a medication change even if its a slight one. If you're worried talk to the doctor before your next appointment. Hope it passes soon.

Hi Colin,

It's certainly worth speaking to your GP about the potential interactions these medications may be having.
I don't know what dosage of carbamazepine you have been taking but if you want to come off these meds I would suggest that it is done safely and gradually,ie a reduction every two weeks.

My GP instructed me to reduce them every two days which turned out to be incorrect on face value,however,I was crossing over to a new medication at the time.

Also,if you take any other meds alongside your prescribed one's I would mention this to your GP too.

I hope your appointment goes well for you,good luck. (y)
