Chronic paroxysmal hemicrania (CPH) & Epilepsy

I was diagnosed with Epilepsy (Complex Partial) in November with symptoms starting in October. I've also been having "ice-pick" headaches or Chronic paroxysmal hemicrania (CPH) starting at the exact same time as the Epilepsy and Migraines (all on the left side). Does anyone else have CPH and epilepsy, and if so, which meds are you allowed to take? Right now I'm on Keppra 1000mg 2Xs a day, Nortriptyline 30mg 1X a day, and starting Lamictal at 25mg 2Xs per day (on starter pack to get off Keppra and use Lamictal). I'm not taking anything for CPH right now, my doc seems to think what I'm taking now will take the CPH away, but it hasn't and it's getting progressively worse. Please, HELP.
