I was prescribed carbamazepin because of trigeminal neuralgia. I‘ve been suffering severe pain in facial nerve. I’m on 100mg released form tablets daily. I’ forgot to notice that I’m on birth control pills. Is there a relation between these two things? Is carbamazepin able to affect pills effect?

Yes, so you should use alternative protection during treatment. Carbamazepine reduces effectiveness of birth control pills, so there is a risk of unexpected pregnancy. And also, carbamazepin should not be used in pregnancy. It is not established as safe enough. I guess that the only way is to use condom or to abstain during is on carbamazepine.
