Can I use ConZip if I am taking medications for seizures?

You should not take ConZip (tramadol) at the same time you're on the antiseizure medication carbamazepine (Carbatrol, Epitol, Equetro, Tegretol). ConZip is prescribed for adults to provide around-the-clock relief from moderate to moderately severe pain; carbamazepine affects the way the body breaks down ConZip in a way that makes it less effective. Before you take ConZip, let your doctor know if you're using carbamazepine. Also, be aware that ConZip often is not recommended for people with epilepsy or who are otherwise vulnerable to seizures, because the medication adds to that risk.
