Hello,It is not safe to use anabolic steroids either way, epilepsy medication or not.
The indication for medical use would be certain type of osteoporosis,HIV wasting disease ,itching in some biliary diseases etc.
The liver side effects might cause the anticonvulsant blood levels vary.
Other side effects other than liver damage would include structural changes in the heart,hypogonadism,and erectile dysfunction.
