Equetro Medication Information

Bipolar disorder, also known as manic depression, can often be effectively treated with Equetro® (carbamazepine). The medicine comes in a capsule and is usually taken twice a day. It's important to keep in mind that clinical studies have shown this drug to be effective as a short-term treatment only -- likely no longer than three or so weeks.
 
Prior to beginning treatment with Equetro, it's a good idea to review the medication's safety information with your healthcare provider. Side effects are possible, and may include drowsiness, dizziness, or coordination problems. In addition, some people may not be able to use this drug, such as those with heart disease, glaucoma, or thyroid problems.
