Pregnancy and Lamotrigine/Lamictal - any experience with this?

[deleted account] ( 1 mom has responded )

I am pregnant with my first child (incredibly excited - woo hoo!). I am on the medication Lamotrigine (generic form of Lamictal) to control my seizures (seizure free for a few years). Just wondering if anyone else has had experience with this drug during pregnancy? Did you have a healthy pregnancy? Was your baby born healthy? I've spoken with my neurologist who says this is one of the safest medications to be on while pregnant, however, I would like to hear from others who have experienced it first hand. It would help alleviate my concerns. Cheers :)

Make sure you are taking a lot of folic acid, and there is a great site called that can help you out with your question.

Congrats on your pregnancy!
