Hi,
Welcome to the ehealthforum and I am glad to help you out. Please be assured that the symptoms which you are complaining of are unlikely to be due to the medications which you’re taking. However, it makes sense to an EEG and an MRI of the brain and if these reports are normal, then you should stop taking tegrital as you’ve already taken it for quite a long time. Please do consult a neurologist before stopping the medicines. Taking these medications will not hamper your married life at all. I sincerely hope that helps. Take care.
