[[treatment:Vimpat:5526c9df1fcaa3c8cb000399]] And [[treatment:Keppra:5508b44d6bcd6155dd0008e5]] And Pregnancy

Has anyone taken [[treatment:keppra:5508b44d6bcd6155dd0008e5]] and [[treatment:vimpat:5526c9df1fcaa3c8cb000399]] during pregnancy or know of anyone who has? The lack of data on [[treatment:vimpat:5526c9df1fcaa3c8cb000399]] during human pregnancy scares me a lot.

Thank you.

I was on that and some other ones. When I was pregnant the doctor lowered all my doses of everything, I was scared. But it all turned out great, now I have healthy Doyle who is 21!

I’ve had 1 pregnancy on Keppra and 2 pregnancies on Lamictal. Both medications controlled my seizures, but I didn’t tolerate the side effects from Keppra. For all, I had my blood levels checked regularly and dose increased as needed, and today I have 3 happy, healthy kids :).

Congrats about your pregnancy I'm new to vimpat I've been on it now for 6 months and again I've noticed throughout here everybody's experiences are different I have four children already and I'm 36 my epilepsey came out of nowhere I don't know if you are one that was born with epilepsy so your body is able to handle the pregnancy better and prepare for it but my experience with vimpat has been good and bad again I don't know what's happening we're still trying to figure out my body and why I'm having all three types of seizures that you can possibly get in life anyways good luck with your pregnancy
