Levothyroxine and Carbamazepine

Does anyone take the above combination ? I have no thyroid now for nearly 10 years and maintained on 200mg levo as it suited me. In September I moved and joined a new practice. New gp said 200 too high and reduced me to 125 at which point I hit the ground running. Intervention by senior partner resulted in 200 being reinstated but only gradually...hopefully this week. Meanwhile I saw neurologist last week as I had a brain tumour removed last year which left me parylised down right side and I had to learn to walk again. Done that but I am getting focal seizures in that leg so have to go on carbamazepine . I have read that there is an interaction and having hit the lowest point yesterday in respect of depression ( first time couldn't face even work) I am worried what's going to happen next. Has anyone had experience of both drugs together ?
