Long term is tegretol or lamictal safer for a cardiac patient? 2 stents in LAD artery.

Both fairly safe, Yet, i would tend not to use tegretol due to its potential for adverse effects, such as lowering sodium, causing bone marrow anemias, affecting liver function, but also raising cholesterol levels (which indirectly might harm the heart eventually). Big issue with Lamictal is occasional rash, but otherwise, not a bad choice and well tolerated.
