Lamictal while breastfeeding?
Does anyone have any personal experience taking Lamictal and breastfeeding? All the research I've done online says it's contraindicated because it passes through breastmilk, but isn't the baby getting some while in utero anyway (hence the mega dose of folic acid suggested)? Why is this such a bad thing? My normal dose is 100 mg per day, but my neuro. raised my dose to 200 mg. per day because my level was low (because of pregnancy/metabolism). I'm going to ask him about it at my next appointment, but I was just curious if anyone has breastfed her baby while taking it. I have partial complex seizures, if that matters. (Haven't had a seizure in 10 years, but EEGs are still coming back abormal.) Thanks!
