Many anticonvulsants can affect the way folic acid is utilized. Does the prescribing information give any idea ?
I know that folic acid is generally advised for those taking depakote.
From www.rxlist.com under lamotragine, I found..
"Folate concentrations were also reduced in male rats given repeated oral doses of lamotrigine. Reduced concentrations were partially returned to normal when supplemented with folinic acid."
