Ask your doctor: There's no right 'generally speaking' kind of answer for this question. You really should speak to your doctor about the risk vs. Benefits of continuing ssri or Lamictal during pregnancy to you and to the unborn child, as well as the risks vs. Benefits of leaving your symptoms controlled. A lot will depend on how severe your illness (? Psych/neuro) gets when untreated with meds.
