interaction between desmopressin and other medications

Hi,
Does any one have any experience or knowledge of other medications interacting with DDAVP?
My 25 year old daughter has had Pan-hypopituitarism/Diabetes insipidus since birth, she also has epilepsy and severe learning disabilities with no verbal communication.
We have always had difficulty in controlling her fluid balance and getting the correct dose of DDAVP and have noticed that every time she has a change in her anti epilepsy medication we have to adjust her DDAVP. She has recently gone from having a total of 5.75 tabs (0.01mg) per day down to just one quarter to a half tab total per day.
I am aware of the interaction between carbamazepine and DDAVP, but no-one seems to be able to advise me regarding other medications. she currently takes 3 different anti epilepsy drugs and has had fairly frequent changes due to her seizures not being well controlled.
Thanks
heather
