Can a man taking keppra (levetiracetam) XR cause for a miscarriage? Also, the woman taking vyvanse? Can either be the reason for having trouble getting pregnant?

In brief: Medications

Vyvanse is a pregnancy category c drug, which means there are no controlled studies of safety available.
That means the drug can be used in pregnancy if the benefit outweighs the unknown risks. There are no female fertility effects of taking this drug. Male drug use does not cause miscarriages, but sometimes associated with male fertility problems; I am not aware of any such issues with keppra (levetiracetam).
