Hello.
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.

Having a new problem with low sodium. Level has dropped from 135 to 126 in less than a week. This is for my boyfriend who has very advanced MS. He is now having partial seizures lasting 45 seconds every 1 1/2 minutes. He started having this problem in Feb and Valporic acid was added and Levetiracetam which he has been on for a number of years was increased. This didn t work and Lacosamide was later added, which isn t working either, in fact he maybe worse. Can any of these drugs contribute to the low sodium?
