Lamotrigine/Lamictal and hormonal birth control

hullo VP! I need some help.

I'm starting lamotrigine tonight, it's an anticonvulsant they're using to treat my bipolar. (it's the generic for Lamictal) I did some research and I know that hormonal birth control affects the serum levels of this medicine and I plan to deal with that. However, the little printout my pharmacy gives for each medicine claims that lamotrigine can affect the efficacy of my HBC? I didn't read that anywhere else. Has anyone, experience with the drug or no, ever heard of this?
