The newer generation antiepileptics: felbamate (Felbatol), gabapentin (Neurontin), lamotrigine (Lamictal), levetiracetam (Keppra), oxcarbazepine (Trileptal), tiagabine (Gabitril), topiramate (Topamax), and zonisamide (Zonegran) are supposed to have better tolerability profiles, low interaction potential, and significantly less liver enzyme issues. Side effects for all:dizzy, drowsy, mental slowing
