Q and A: Taking Activated charcoal while taking Medication for Epilepsy


Hi, My husband takes tegratol, which controls his epilepsy. is there any way possible he can use AC with his condition? he can NOT have a seizure or he will lose his driver’s license. TIA


Hi, I am not familiar with all the various medications. There are a number of meds that people take only once a day. These meds are reabsorbed into the meds-1bowels and then they release throughout the day. Charcoal goes in the mouth and out the other end and would most likely make such a med of non-effect.
The best person to ask would be your pharmacist who knows the drug, but my personal response would be no, do not take charcoal internally with his epilepsy meds.
For what reason did he want to take the charcoal?  I am just wondering if a charcoal poultice or patch may be of some use.
