Lamictal interactions

Has anyone ever heard of or experienced the lamictal/HBC interaction? Lamictal is a mood stabilizer, used for bipolar and epilepsy, and apparently the levels of it get inhibited by HBC.

So basically,if you're on 400mg, your body reacts as though it's on 300mg instead, because the HBC reduces the lamictal levels. Usually I stack my pills indefinitely and just don't get periods, but lately I've been having enough annoying spotting that I've been told to just do the off-week and actually get a "real" period to reset my cycle.

Has anyone had a similar experience with birth control affecting other meds or vice versa?

Thanks in advance, you lovely people.
