I keep getting double vision, loss of balance, dizziness and occasional vomiting from taking carbamazepine. I'm taking 300mg twice a day wich has been reduced from 400mg twice a day because I was having such bad problems with it.

Can Carbamazepine alone treat seizures even after a seizure occurs while on it? I was on Carbamazepine for YEARS and recently, by mistake, drank alcohol and had a seizure. My doctor has since also put me on Keppra.

I take Carbamazepine and clobazam with amiytriptyline, gabapentin, Tramodol, diclofenic sodium and omeprazole the last five medicines are for pain relief for something else not my epilepsy, is this ok?
