Dr. Shahzad MD :

Hi there. Thank you for your question. I will be helping you out with your queries

Dr. Shahzad MD :

Estrrogens decreases levels of lamotrigine and carbamazepine will decrease the level or effect of estrogens. These are significant interactions and therefore I would not recommend that you should start HRT on your own and you should consult your doctor in this regard. I would not recommend using HRT in combination with the medications that you are already taking.

Dr. Shahzad MD :

Let me know if you have anymore questions.

In fact, as a transexual you will need hormonal therapy and a competent doctor can adjust your medications so that they are therapeutic.
There is not an absolute contraindication here.

You did not say you are doing this on your own.

So let me ask you
Do you have an endocrinologist?

Where are you in the process?

Have you had psychological evaluation?

I am a double board certified clinician and will respond until you are satisfied.
