Our expert says:
1) A South African pharmacy will require a South African prescription and you'll have to take your NHS script to any GP to have it "South-Africanised".
2) a Controlled-release (time release) version of Tegretol IS available in South-Africa. It is called TEGRETOL CR and is available in a 200 mg and 400 mg strength. Price-wise these also aren't very expensive, costing almost the same as per tablet as normal Tegretol.
