Re: Help me to make a choice for myself and my future baby-in regards to seizure meds

Another option is to (obviously with your MD's approval) slowly taper off, see how you do, hopefully get pregnant if things go well, and then if you'd feel better, go back on the meds.....

I haven't been on Lamictal....my mom was....she had dementia, so it's hard to know if she had side effects or not.....I was on Keppra= I had bad constspation-- bad enough that laxatives didn't work....had to go off of it. I wasn't on it long enough to know if it helped or not, which is a bummer.
