Tegretol®

Was ist Tegretol und wann wird es angewendet?

Tegretol mit dem Wirkstoff Carbamazepin ist ein Antiepileptikum und wird auf Verschreibung des

Arztes bzw. der Ärztin angewendet zur Behandlung von Anfallsleiden (Epilepsie) bei Erwachsenen

und Kindern. Weiterhin wird es auch angewendet zur Behandlung von einigen Nervenerkrankungen,

z.B. Trigeminusneuralgie, bei bestimmten psychischen (seelischen) Erkrankungen (Manie, manisch-

depressive Krankheit) sowie bei Beschwerden, die während einer Alkoholentziehungskur auftreten.

Wann darf Tegretol nicht angewendet werden?

Bei Überempfindlichkeitsreaktionen (Allergie) auf den Wirkstoff Carbamazepin oder ähnliche

Wirkstoffe wie z.B. Oxcarbazepin (Trileptal) oder andere Arzneimittel, die ebenfalls mit

Überempfindlichkeitsreaktionen in Verbindung gebracht werden, wie z.B. Trizyklische

Antidepressiva (z.B. Amitriptylin, Imipramin) darf Tegretol nicht angewendet werden.

Tegretol darf ebenfalls nicht angewendet werden bei gleichzeitiger Einnahme von bestimmten

Arzneimitteln, sogenannten Monoamino-Oxidase-Inhibitoren (MAOIs) zur Behandlung von

Depressionen.

Bei bestimmten Begleiterkrankungen sollten Sie Tegretol nicht oder erst nach eingehender ärztlicher

Prüfung einnehmen. Deshalb informieren Sie Ihren Arzt bzw. Ihre Ärztin, wenn Sie an folgenden

Erkrankungen leiden oder früher gelitten haben:

·Störungen der Herzfunktion,

·Blutbildungsstörungen,

·Leber- oder Nierenerkrankungen,

·gemischten Anfallsformen der Epilepsie,

·erhöhter Augeninnendruck (Glaukom, grüner Star),

·Verwirrtheitszustände oder Erregtheit und Unruhe,

·Überempfindlichkeitsreaktionen auf Oxcarbazepin oder andere Arzneimittel,

·Porphyrie,

·Orale Suspension: Allergische Reaktionen auf Konservierungsstoffe (Parabene) oder bei

Fruchtzucker-Unverträglichkeit (Sorbitol).

Wann ist bei der Einnahme/Anwendung von Tegretol Vorsicht geboten?

Sprechen Sie sofort mit Ihrem Arzt bzw. Ihrer Ärztin oder stellen Sie sicher, dass jemand anderer

dies für Sie tun kann, falls irgendwelche der folgenden (gelegentlichen oder seltenen)

Nebenwirkungen auftreten. Sie könnten frühe Anzeichen einer ernsten Schädigung Ihres Blutes,

Ihrer Leber, Ihrer Nieren oder anderer Organe sein und könnten dringend ärztliche Behandlung

erfordern:

·Fieber, Halsschmerzen, Hautausschlag, Geschwüre im Mund, geschwollene Drüsen,

·Dunkelfärbung des Urins,

·Anzeichen starker Hautreaktionen, wie z.B. Schälen der Haut, Ausschlag,

·jede Gelbfärbung Ihrer Haut oder des weissen Teils Ihrer Augen,

·Schwellung der Knöchel, Füsse oder Unterschenkel,

·unregelmässiger Herzschlag, Atemnot, Brustschmerz, Bewusstseinsverlust,

·Zunahme von Krämpfen,

·vermehrt blaue Flecken wegen geringfügiger Ursachen.

·falls bei Ihnen aufgrund der Einnahme von Tegretol Schwindel, Schläfrigkeit, Blutdruckabfall oder

Verwirrtheit auftreten, was zu Stürzen führen kann.

Schwerwiegende und weniger schwerwiegende unerwünschte Haut-/ Unverträglichkeitsreaktionen

treten selten unter der Behandlung (insbesondere in den ersten Monaten nach Behandlungsbeginn)

mit Tegretol auf. Dieses Risiko kann durch eine bestimmte Blutprobe vor Behandlungsbeginn

insbesondere bei europäischen Patienten, aber auch bei Patienten mit asiatischer Abstammung näher

beurteilt werden. Vor Behandlungsbeginn sollten Sie daher eine entsprechende Bluttestung mit

Ihrem behandelnden Arzt bzw. Ihrer behandelnden Ärztin besprechen und vornehmen. Wichtig ist,

dass es auch trotz einer unauffälligen Blutprobe trotzdem zu unerwünschten Hautreaktionen kommen

kann, und dass es auch trotz einer auffälligen Blutprobe nicht unbedingt zu unerwünschten

Reaktionen kommen muss.

Dieses Arzneimittel kann die Reaktionsfähigkeit, die Fahrtüchtigkeit und die Fähigkeit, Werkzeuge

oder Maschinen zu bedienen, beeinträchtigen.

Informieren Sie Ihren Arzt bzw. Ihre Ärztin, wenn bei Ihnen eine Operation (auch ein kleiner

Eingriff) geplant ist.

Da Tegretol, wie andere psychoaktive Arzneimittel, zu einer Verminderung der

Alkoholverträglichkeit führen kann, ist es empfehlenswert, während der Behandlung auf

Alkoholgenuss zu verzichten.

Essen Sie keine Grapefruits und trinken Sie keinen Grapefruitsaft, da sie die Wirkungen von Tegretol

verstärken können. Andere Fruchtsäfte haben keinen Einfluss. Bei Frauen, die empfängnisverhütende

Präparate (Anti-Baby-Pille) und gleichzeitig Tegretol einnehmen, können Zwischenblutungen

auftreten. Die Pille kann dadurch unwirksam werden. Daher sind zusätzlich nicht-hormonelle

Empfängnisverhütungsmittel anzuwenden.

Informieren Sie Ihren Arzt oder Apotheker bzw. Ihre Ärztin oder Apothekerin, wenn Sie

·an anderen Krankheiten leiden,

·Allergien haben,

·Sie eine Nierenerkrankung haben und Arzneimittel einnehmen um Ihre Blutnatriumwerte zu senken,

oder

·andere Arzneimittel (auch selbstgekaufte!) einnehmen oder äusserlich anwenden.

Eine geringe Anzahl von Patienten, die mit Antiepileptika wie Tegretol behandelt wurden, hatten

Gedanken daran, sich selbst zu verletzen oder sich das Leben zu nehmen. Wenn Sie zu irgendeinem

Zeitpunkt während der Einnahme von Tegretol solche Gedanken haben sollten, kontaktieren Sie

sofort Ihren Arzt.

Darf Tegretol während einer Schwangerschaft oder in der Stillzeit eingenommen werden?

Frauen im gebärfähigen Alter sollten während der Behandlung mit Tegretol und bis zu 2 Wochen

nach der letzten Dosis eine zuverlässige Verhütungsmethode anwenden. Sie sollten unbedingt Ihren

Arzt bzw. Ihre Ärztin informieren, wenn Sie schwanger sind, mit einer Schwangerschaft rechnen

oder stillen. Tegretol darf nicht ohne ausdrückliche ärztliche Verordnung während der

Schwangerschaft oder Stillzeit eingenommen bzw. angewendet werden.

Wie verwenden Sie Tegretol?

Tegretol sollte nur auf ärztliche Anweisung eingenommen werden. Halten Sie sich bei der Einnahme

des Arzneimittels stets genau an die Anweisung Ihres Arztes bzw. Ihrer Ärztin. Wenn Sie sich nicht

sicher sind, sprechen Sie mit Ihrem Arzt oder Apotheker bzw. Ihrer Ärztin oder Apothekerin. Die

Dosierung wird vom Arzt bzw. der Ärztin festgelegt und ist je nach Anwendungsbereich, Alter und

Ausprägung der Störungen verschieden.

Tegretol Orale Suspension: Zur korrekten Dosierung muss der beigelegte Messlöffel gebraucht

werden: 1 Messlöffel (5 ml) enthält 100 mg der Wirksubstanz von Tegretol. Flasche vor Gebrauch

schütteln.

Tegretol ist während oder nach den Mahlzeiten mit Flüssigkeit einzunehmen.

Tegretol CR Divitabs (entweder ganze Tablette oder – falls so verordnet – eine halbe Tablette) sind

unzerkaut mit etwas Flüssigkeit einzunehmen.

Um den besten Effekt zu erzielen und die Wahrscheinlichkeit von Nebenwirkungen zu vermindern,

ist es sehr wichtig, dass Tegretol regelmässig eingenommen wird. Falls Sie die Einnahme bzw.

Anwendung des Arzneimittels einmal vergessen haben, holen Sie diese so rasch wie möglich nach.

Falls jedoch bereits der Zeitpunkt für die nächste Einnahme bzw. Anwendung erreicht ist, holen Sie

die vergessene Einnahme bzw. Anwendung nicht nach, sondern gehen direkt zur nächsten über.

Falls Sie mehr als eine Einnahme bzw. Anwendung ausgelassen haben, konsultieren Sie bitte Ihren

Arzt bzw. Ihre Ärztin.

Bei der Behandlung einer Trigeminusneuralgie beträgt die maximale Tagesdosis 1‘200 mg.

Ändern oder unterbrechen Sie nicht von sich aus die verschriebene Dosierung. Wenn Sie glauben,

das Arzneimittel wirke zu schwach oder zu stark, so sprechen Sie mit Ihrem Arzt oder Apotheker

bzw. Ihrer Ärztin oder Apothekerin.
