I am currently trying to fall pregnant. I was on TOPOMAX but due to the very hi risk of this drug for pregnancy I was changed to Lamactil.
Was anyone else on AED'S while pregnant and were you and baby ok?
I had a major seizure 6 weeks before the birth of my first and they put me on Tegretol This was mid 80's & went onto have 2 more healthy children ,whilst on Tegretol Then they seemed more interested in whether Tegretol affected the breast milk. ! Looking back on my experiences years ago I should've sought more advice from a neuro and a gynaecologist Good luck ,I hope it all works out for you x
Read my story so I don't have to explain.The modern AEDs will have
no effect on your baby. Meds for other conditions- like heart issues or
high blood pressure would. Thankfully those for epilepsy give you a
wide range of choices to avoid this worry.
