Duodenal ulcer 3 yrs after starting tegretol

I have a patient who is a 54 yer old mother in Lagos Nigeria and is taking 800mg b.d.of tegretol to effectively control her epileptic fits. she has now developed duodenal ulcer of 4 weeks duration. What alternative to tegretol should I use?
Or if possible if I am to continue tegretol, what should i do?

sorry folks. In my last posting, I made a mistake on the dosage. It is 600mg bd not 800mg bd
