: : I am pregnant with my third child...taking tegratol and a minimal amount of phenobarb. Was in the middle of transitioning from pheno to tegratol. Am concerned about the side effects to my child. Any help would be greatly appreciated.
: Hello Diane;
: I took phenobarbitol for two pregnancies with no problems. They are now a healthy 15 and 16. I was on tegretol for the last pregnancy, no health problems. She is a healthy two. I was on 1000 milligrams a day of carbamazepine (generic tegretol) per day. Good luck to you . Deb
I took 3400mg of tegretol and minimal phenobarb when I was pregnant with my first. I have a healthy baby girl. She is only 5months old but she seems to be ahead of the game. Good Luck! Laura
