How to treat medication mediated nausea,dizziness?

I am taking a titration starter pack of lamictal xr and I am on the third day of 50mg I have 1 1/2 weeks of the 50mg left before I go up to 100mg, I am also taking 200mg of Zonisamide (Zonegran) I have a lot of nausea (no vomiting) and a lot of dizziness like motion sickness. Kinda like riding backwards in a car. Will these side effects go away with use?

Hello,

As first line management, you can take an antacids-antiemetic combination like Pantoprazole-Domperidone for symptomatic relief. If symptoms persist you can consult a gastroenterologist and get evaluated.

Hope I have answered your query. Let me know if I can assist you further.

Take care

Regards,
Dr Shinas Hussain, General & Family Physician

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?
