Hi, crissy! Yes, they can actually be taken together ~ and are often prescribed together. However, since both drugs have been very rarely the cause of seizures taking them together increases the risk.
Your doctor (and I presume your doctor(s) ordered these meds) is aware of this and determined the benefits outweigh this slight risk. Be sure to allow her/him to monitor you closely and supervise your progress.
Best wishes to you, Wildcat
