Our expert says:
Presumably if tegretol is being used, someone has made a properly expert diagnosis of Bipolar Disorder ? ( One wouldn't generally use Tegretol in pure depression ). And it seems likely that its the tegretol causing the unpleasant side-effects you describe. I do hope this combination has been prescribed by a specialist psychiatrist after the psychiatrist's diagnosis. If so, discuss this with the shrink, who may want to revise the medication. If not, then ask to be very promptly referred to a psychiatrist for a re-assessment and a reconsideration of the treatment plan
