In brief: See below
Peripheral neuropathy, optic neuritis, seizures, encephalopathy, psychosis, and liver side effects may occur with higher doses, especially in combination with rifampin.
Follow liver enzymes monthly. Extra pyridoxine (vitamin b-6) is recommended. Because of liver effects decrease dose of carbamazepine, diazepam, phenytoin, and Prednisone if you take those medications at same time.
