: I have just been diagnosed with epilepsy. My doctor wants to put me on dilantin, tegretol, or depakot. I am in excellent health and shape. I am looking forward to having children in a few years. I do not want to be medicated. What can I do?
Just want you to know that I have been pregnant and delivered two healthy children while on
phenobarbitol and one healthy child while on tegretol. It will be ok. Be sensible, take better
care of yourself than most. No drinking, no smoking. It is possible to lead a normal life and
have children that you will love and who will love you in this world. Take care.
