Thanks for choosing HealthcareMagic forum.
Almost all the drugs that are used to treat seizures do induce all the liver enzymes causing an earlier degradation of other drugs like oral pills. So, if you take oral pills during this time, it will not provide full protection. It is best to use a condom or get an IUD inserted.
