I Have Right Temporal Lobe Epilepsy And I'm Currently On Vimpat. Anybody Out There Have Vivid Or Weird Dreams?

I have right temporal lobe (lesions on the right side)epilepsy and I'm currently on Vimpat. Anybody out there have vivid or weird dreams? Some of mine are extremely life like and some are weird enough that I probably would tell them to anybody. Some of them stick in my memory even when I wish they wouldn't.

I am currently on Lamictal & Keppra. My doctor wants to add Vimpat to my current medication. I have read the side effects and I am scared. Does anyone have good experience with Vimpat?
I appreciate your help.
