Carbamazepine and Co-Codamol...was HORRIBLE!
Ive recently started taking 200mg of Carbamazepine and seem to have settled on it quite well. Yesterday I had very very bad period pains, and I took a co codamol tablet (30/500mg) which I had in the cupboard from a few months back. Within about 20 min my skin was tingling and felt like it was moving, my heartbeat was faster, my muscles were tense, and I was slurring my words and struggling to speak in coherent sentences. I actually called NHS 111 because I was really panicking - I've never had an experience like that before. I was told that the carbamazepine and co codamol both work by slowing down the connections in your brain, so I was having a double 'slow-down' if you will. After about 2 hours it passed, and I went to bed. Feel fine today, but just wanted to share this experience. DO NOT take co codamol with carbamazepine unless your doctor has prescribed it. It was a stupid thing to do!
