epilepsy meds and pregnancy
Anon_153941 posted:
Hi, My daughter (age 18) is about 14 wks pregnant and has been off her meds since she became pregnant (she did this without drs advice)
and now she is having seizures becoming more severe that yesterday she ended up hospitalized and her neurologist is putting her on iv seizure meds and giving her lamictal to take. Since she is in her 2nd trimester, he says the risks are lower and that her seizures are a

pregnancy or if there were birth defects??? THanks for any info on this
