Question Just diagnosed. Trileptal and birthcontrol?

I have just been diagnosed and my doctor put me on dilantin first then changed me to trileptal. My honeymoon is in 2 wks. He said it MIGHT make birth control less effective. does anyone have more specific info on this?

I posted a question about birthcontrol recently and since i did not receive any reply i went ahead and did some research on my own. Here is a web site that you could check out and you will find very helpful regarding birthcontrol and your med. I learned that the birthcontrol maybe less effective while taking epileptic drugs. Therefore, you will need to consult with your doctor about giving you a higher prescription of birthcontrol pills. Good Luck!
