Current medical status: i've had 5 eye surgeries..........a prosthesis in my eye...........one in my head .......to give it natural curve again.......they all turned out good.........my head is curved again and my eye has been brought further forward and is not as sunk in to my head


Current medical treatment: 900 mg of tegrotal xr.............300 mg.........3 X a day. 30 mg of ritalin a day.......20 mg when i wake up and 10 mg in the afternoon





There are no data that Tegretol (carbamazepin) and Ritalin (metilphenidate) can somehow interact with the corticosteroids. So, you can counsalt your GP about taking anabolic steroids together with these anti-epileptic drugs.
