Side effect of med: Tegretol is associated with both dysphagia (difficulty swallowing) and esophageal and gastric dysmotility. This can cause food and drink to stay in the esophagus for longer than normal and increase pressure in the esophagus which you would feel in your chest. Whether you are taking Tegretol for seizures or bipolar symptoms you should talk to your doctor about changing or stopping this medication
