Hello & Welcome to Just Answers.
The biggest risk is seizures, and it's not unwarranted, so if you choose to discontinue Carbamezepine, you need to do it slowly. The best way is to call the prescribing doctor's office and ask for a step-down schedule. This way, they'll have your medical history at hand and can warn you of any other interactions you may have with other disorders or medications. Warnings
If you decide you want to do it on your own, 25% reduction every 2 weeks is the most common method for self-directed withdrawal. Carbamazepine has a half-life of 24-65 hours, so it exits your body very slowly over 1-3 days. This means you want to take it slow, as today's reduction won't really be felt for 3 days and you don't want to get ahead of yourself.
Sorry you've had to change doctors so much...that really makes it hard to find the right medication and dosage.
My best to you.
