Biotin Drug Interactions
Some seizure medications may increase the risk of a biotin deficiency. It is not known exactly why this might occur. However, it has been suggested that seizure medications may decrease biotin absorption from the digestive tract, increase the breakdown of biotin in the body, or increase the excretion of biotin through the urine. Some people think that these effects of biotin might be responsible for some of the side effects (and some of the desired effects) of seizure medications.
