Trileptal & Zonegran

can anyone tell me what kind of side effects they've experienced with Trileptal. I was just put on a low dosage (300mgs daily) along with Zonegran (200mgs daily), which I've been on for a few months now. I will slowly be raising my dosage of Trileptal over the next few week to 750mgs daily. This is for the treatment of complex partial seizures. Any info would be greatly appreciated. Thanks!

I have been on trileptal for 6 months for the same treatment. The only side effects that I have noticed are dizzyness and lightheaded both of them I can control by eating before I take my pills.
