Hi , need some help on this please. sorry can't spell very well. I'm 28 and have two sons and currently pg now 5 months . Has any one else been Been on tegretol 600mgs and 3000mgs of Keppra and had a heathy baby? Oh i'm also bypioler not on meds for that since I found out that I was having a baby. When I was pregnet with my two sons I was only on 300mg of Tegretol yes ther heathy . But this is new to me . I'm scared and alone with this trying to cope I said trying. Can Anyone help?
i am not on those particular meds, but I am pregnant and on two meds. And i am a nervous wreck! but so far the baby looks good, I am almost five months like you. I went to see a specialist, someone who specializes in maternal fetal medicine, basically a high risk OB. and he said, and he was an experinced dr. that he had seen Many women on seizure meds deliver healthy babies and even though lots of drugs were rated D (all presrcptions) only a small few were actually cause for concern, now he didnt' tell me what they were, but that helped me. Also be sure you are taking folic acid, and lots of it!!! I am on 4 mg a day. It's a very very hard decision, cause you either take the meds and risk those problems or don't and have seizures and that can be even worse for your baby! So, good luck, i hope all works out for you. There is a thread about this on the pregnancy boards too I think, i hope i am allowed to say that, if not i apoligize!
