Re: help

I'm thinking about switching medications, so my doctor just gave me a print-out of the major ones. The sheet I have says not to take the medicine if you are pregnant. It has no predictions about what will happen to the child. It just says to call your health care provider immediately.

I'd take that advice.

Re: help

i would definitely switch medicines. im on depakote also and from what my dr always tells me it is not one to be on while pregnant. not to scare you but i think you should have her switch meds bc i think depakote is known to cause birth defects. also my dr always talks about folic acid should i ever get pregnant. its supposed to help with counteracting the AEDs. you might want to look into that. good luck with everything.
