side effects of lamictal/tegretol combination?

Is there anyone out there taking both lamictal and tegretol together and experiencing side effects such as being very spaced out and double vision?
I've been on this combination for over a year now and for much of that time feeling these effects.Both my neuro and G.P. say its noy related but I have serious reservations.I've been epileptic for 45 years and on different medications at different times,sometimes with side effects but most of the time not.Living my life has been extremely difficult over the last year because of this.thanks.

... i am taking tegretol by itself & also have the spaced out feelings. not so much double-vision, but also a slight delay in my reaction time and difficulty with short-term memory ...

good luck!
