Warnings
Although reported infrequently, serious adverse effects have been observed during the use of carbamazepine. Agranulocytosis and aplastic anemia have occurred in a few instances with fatal outcome. Leukopenia thrombocytopenia and hepatocellular and cholestatic jaundice have also been reported. It is, therefore, important that carbamazepine be used carefully and close clinical and frequent laboratory supervision should be maintained throughout treatment in order to detect as early as possible signs and symptoms of a possible blood dyscrasia.
Carcinogenicity studies conducted in rats indicated a potential carcinogenic risk. Keep in mind the possible risks as well as the potential benefits before prescribing carbamazepine.
