Hi,

There are no known interactions of Carbamazepine with Basil, Sage, Amla powder and Almonds. These are all natural supplements. However, Geraniol, a chemical in Spanish sage (Salvia lavandulaefolia), might have some of the same effects as estrogen. Taking Spanish sage along with estrogen pills might decrease the effects of estrogen pills. So, if you are on estrogen pills you need to be careful. If you are not allergic to any of the ingredients listed above, then should be safe. But it would be a good precaution to consult your treating doctor as well
