Phenobarbital The plasma clearance of phenobarbital was also studied in the investigations cited above and both studies demonstrated that the plasma clearance of phenobarbital was increased, but this was much less marked than for phenytoin (17,18). Similar findings were reported more recently with total plasma concentrations declining by 55% and the sharpest decrease occurring in the first trimester (12), but considerable inter-individual variation has been demonstrated (24). Even more recently, a further study has reported that both total and free phenobarbital concentrations may decrease by 50% (23).
While plasma carbamazepine may decline by over 40% at constant dosage, non-protein bound drug is reported to be less affected (12). Another group found that compared with baseline, total carbamazepine concentrations were just 10% lower during the third trimester with the free concentrations only 4% lower (14,15). The ratio of epoxide metabolite to carbamazepine concentration usually increases during gestation, although not in a predictable manner. This has been attributed to reduced metabolism of epoxide through epoxide hydrolase inhibition (34), but equally epoxide formation might be enhanced.
