Brief Answer:
some interactions can occur

Detailed Answer:
Hi, thanks for using healthcare magic

There are some interactions that would require monitoring but they can be used together.

The interactions are--(1) lamotrigine (lamictal) increases the toxicity of sertraline (zoloft)
(2)sertraline (zoloft) may increase the effect and level of brexiprazole (rexulti)
by affecting its break down
(3) Depakote increases lamotrigine (lamictal) by decreasing its breakdown

It is possible that you may not experience any side effects of these reactions but you should be monitored to see if any occurs

I hope this helps, feel free to ask any other questions

My husband has switched his Keppra and his Lamictal to the generic versions (Levetiracetam and Lamotrigine). It has been a couple of months now and he is not feeling well, running slight fever and sluggish. Last week he had a TIA. Could the generic versions of his meds be causing these problems?
