Our expert says:
Tegretol is a medication that only works if the concentration in the blood is correct. Doctors usually test peak and trough levels to determine the best dose for a person, but if the child is growing, dose may need to be adjusted with time. She should be monitored regularly by a neurologist. Tegretol may stop or reduce fits dramatically but there is no guarantee that she will not fit at all while on medication.
