Contraception and epilepsy Some methods of contraception may be less effective in preventing pregnancy for women taking certain anti-epileptic drugs (AEDs). This is because some AEDs (enzyme-inducing AEDs) affect how well methods of contraception work. Enzyme induction. In general, phenytoin, phenobarbital, primidone and carbamazepine increase the amount of enzyme protein. In most cases, enzyme induction results in an increase in the rate of metabolism of the affected drug, a decrease in the blood concentration of parent drug and, possibly, a loss of clinical by:

Several commonly prescribed antiepileptic drugs (AEDs)—including phenobarbital, phenytoin, and carbamazepine—stimulate the synthesis of a broad range of monooxygenase and conjugating enzymes.
These agents are well known to reduce the duration and action of many lipid‐ and non–lipid‐soluble drugs, including anticoagulants, cytotoxics, analgesics, antiretrovirals, glucocorticoids, statins, antihypertensives, oral contraceptives, psychoactive drugs Cited by: Gaetano Zaccara, Elisa Gualdani, Laura Policardo, Pasquale Palumbo and Paolo Francesconi, Frequency of drug combinations between enzyme-inducing first-generation antiepileptic drugs and inducible drugs in patients with epilepsy, Epilepsy & Behavior, /, 87, (), ().Cited by: In comparison to drugs of the first generation (phenobarbital [PB], primidon [PRD], phenytoin [PHT], carbamazepine [CBZ] and valproic acid [VPA]) the potential for interactions and side effects due to enzyme induction or inhibition is reduced by most of the anticonvulsant drugs Cited by: Keywords antiepileptic drugs, contraception, epilepsy, liver enzyme induction, women J Fam Plann Reprod Health Care ; 36 (4): Ð (Accepted 31 March ) % # " 3 1$ * # & " 2$ Table 1 Antiepileptic drugs (AEDs) that may reduce blood levels of contraceptive hormones Carbamazepine (Tegretol ¨) Felbamate (Felbatol ¨) Ð not available Cited by: doses of anticonvulsants may be required.
Enzyme induction Some anticonvulsants, particularly phenytoin and carbamazepine induce and increase the production of hepatic enzymes. This can result in clinically significant drug interactions by increasing the metabolism of some co-administered drugs e.g.
oral contraceptives, warfarin,File Size: KB. The t ½,elim times, in plasma quoted below, are for monotherapy, but because of drug interactions caused by enzyme induction, these t ½,elim times may be shorter during combination therapy. Patsalos and colleagues have provided estimates of t ½,elim times for combination therapy and have comprehensively reviewed the role of TDM in epilepsy.
This sup- ports the hypothesis that anticonvulsants, acting via hepatic enzyme induction proces- ses, cause increased transformation of vita- min D into inactive metabolites.
Richens states that it is likely that anticonvulsant osteomalacia is caused by a disturbance of the hepatic hydroxylation of vitamin D3 to hydroxycholecalciferol.

Articles Pharmacogenetics and enzyme induction/ inhibition properties of antiepileptic drugs Gail D. Anderson, PhD Abstract—One of the major differences between the older antiepileptic drugs (AEDs) and the newer AEDs is the potential of the older AEDs for significant interactions with other medications.
INTRODUCTION. Antiepileptic drugs (AEDs) are widely used as long-term adjunctive therapy or as monotherapy in epilepsy and other indications and consist of a group of drugs that are highly susceptible to interactions.
During the last years several new AEDs have been by: Anticonvulsant drugs are known to have inducing properties, and since folate is required as a cofactor in drug hydroxylations it is suggested that folate depletion results from increased demand for the cofactor after induction of drug-metabolizing by: Enzyme-inducing AEDs, namely carbamazepine, phenobarbital, and phenytoin may increase liver metabolism and consequently reduce serum levels of other drugs, including antihypertensives .
Both can cause enzyme induction, and tyrosine kinase inhibitors may also increase the toxicity of concurrent drugs via enzyme inhibition. Corticosteroids, probably the most commonly used drugs in neuro-oncology, can both provoke and undergo metabolic interaction.
Enzyme induction increases metabolism of all drugs that are metabolized by that particular P isoenzyme. Therefore, when multiple drugs are given, drug interactions are likely at the level of P metabolism. This is the major mechanism for drug-drug interactions.
For example, the antiepileptic drug phenytoin induces the CYP1A2 P isoenzyme. Download Citation | Enzyme induction and inhibition by new antiepileptic drugs: A review of human studies | The aim of this paper is to review a number of new antiepileptic agents (i.e.
