Abstract

A case is reported of a 20-year-old female student who had been abusing carbamazepine with alcohol and described a resulting sense of euphoria. The literature is reviewed for evidence to support this claim, and possible mechanisms to account for the euphorigenic effect of alcohol and carbamazepine are discussed.
