There is no known interaction between caffeine and phenytoin or caffeine and Tegretol.
There are other interactions between the medicines and food, etc. Please see link below.
In the first link below -for caffeine citrate, there is a caution about using it in patient with seizures. (Although for this product it is cautioning for use in children, I'm sure the same cautions are for adults).
