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.

Hey sweetlemon,

Thank you for your response. I go back to my doctor today about this two week drug trial I have been on. I am going to tell him about me being a nervous wreck and I will ask him for some nerve pills. That would help out a lot, but he is my epilepsy doctor so I do not know if he will give me a prescription for me or not. I will keep you updated.

Thanks again,
Shari

shari,
I am pretty sure that Xanax falls under anti-epileptic drug category, yet not positive on this point. You must be firm with this doc of yours, tell him/her you can't live like this!!! Give him/her hell girl!!!
Good luck, and let us know what happens,
