Brief Answer: These medicines can be given together Detailed Answer: Hello XXXX, Thanks for choosing WWW.WWWW.WW Epilim is an excellent broad spectrum anti epileptic drug so first try and find the serum level of the drug ( may be given up to 125 mg/ml) Control other factors like regular intake of medicines &, adequate sleep for mind to relax. Make sure he gets 8 hours of sleep daily. Zoloft very rarely can cause seizures if suddenly stopped from a very high dose other wise zoloft has no negative effect, esp. with regard to lowering the serum level of Epilim so there is no problem. I would suggest to add Lemictal , starting with 12.5 mg for 2 weeks and very slowly increasing the dose to 200 mg over a period of 6-8 weeks. It is good for epilepsy and stress both. Please discuss with your doctor as there is a risk of developing skin rash with adding Lemictal. DR SAATIISH JHUNTRRAA
