Thanks for writing your query to us.
Zeptol CR (carbemazepine)is an antiepileptic used to control epilepsy. It has got many side effects & one of it is abnormal heart rhythm commonly called as arrhythmia. Since you have being taking zeptol CR 400 BD , i would advise you to get your serum (blood) levels of carbemazepine. If it is high than its dose needs to be reduced & also get your ECG done during the episode of chest pain. ECG done when you dont have chest pain will not pick up the abnormality of heart.
Wish you good health.
