Hi Shari,
First let me say welcome if you are new to drugs.com.
I did a small search on Vimpat and could find no interactions for benzodiazapines, so perhaps you should call your doc and ask for a small dose of ativan or xanax or valium to make that horrid side effect disappear.
It make make you a wee bit tired at first blush, but better than feelin like a nervous wreck!!!
So sorry that you feel this way. Please update us on your condition, we care.
