I took Lamictal with both my children and had no side effects from the medication. Both babies came out healthy,but if your still concerned have a talk with your Neurologist let him know your concerns. And congrats on your little one.

Congratulations!! I was on only Lamictal when I was pregnant for my daughter. She's now 13. My neurologist told me that was the best med to be on during pregnancy cause it had the least side effects. I hope this helps and I hope you have an awesome pregnancy. ((Hugs))

Congrats!! I think that's the only medication I've never tried cause I'm allergic to all but 5 of them. I'd ask the Dr. for detail about it but if I was to get pregnant again now I'd have to go on I think it was that. The only things I was told was I'm at high risk due to how my epilepsy is & have to hope to not be allergic to it. But if others are on it then it should be safe too

If the doctors says it's okay/safe it is, No one knows better than
that for you. Don't worry unnecessarily Lamictal has been tested
and proven to have no affect on a pregnancy. I know much bout
this (story) relax and enjoy your little one.
