Dear Drugs-Forum readers: We are a small non-profit that runs one of the most read drug information & addiction help websites in the world. We serve over 3 million readers per month, and have costs like all popular websites: servers, hosting, licenses and software. To protect our independence we do not run ads. We take no government funds. We run on donations which average $25. If everyone reading this would donate $5 then this fund raiser would be done in an hour. If Drugs-Forum is useful to you, take one minute to keep it online another year by donating whatever you can today. Donations are currently not sufficient to pay our bills and keep the site up. Your help is most welcome. Thank you.
Chemical name: 10,11-Dihydro-10-oxo-5H-dibenz[b,f]azepine- 5-carboxamide, structure attached.
It's an inhibitor of CYP3A4/5 (resulting in lower plasma concentrations of various drugs, including the oral contraceptive pill) and CYP2C19, and, in clinical trials in adults 23% of people stopped taking it because of adverse effects!
Main adverse effects:
Dizziness, Nausea, somnolence, diplopia, ataxia, tremor and fatigue
Almost 3% of patients develop a hyponatraemia, and (as with any drug) there is a risk of hypersensitivity reactions: 35% of people who are allergic to Carbamazepine will also be sensitive to Oxacarbazepine
All in all, doesn't really sound terribly recreational
