1 doctor agrees

In brief: And the question is?

Anti-epileptic medications must be used very cautiously in patients who are or are thinking about becoming pregnant since birth defects can occur at much higher rates compared with women not taking such medications.
Make sure your doctor acknowledges the risks vs. benefits of being on such medications for your condition if in fact you are serious about becoming pregnant.
