Topic: Tegretol Connection?
I am wondering if anyone knows or has heard of a connection between cholangiocarcinoma and Tegretol use. My daughter was diagnosed last year with CC at 29 years old and when she was 9 she had a seizure disorder which was treated until she turned 14 with the anti-seizure medication Tegretol.
Since this all began, she has been searching for the answer to "why" as she realized that this is both a rare cancer and one that is unusual in young people. She came across an article which hypothesized a connection between Tegretol and the development of CC. Is anyone familiar with this?
