In brief: Yes

This drug is usually used for seizures.
It is a category d drug which means there may a chance the baby could be affected by the drug. However, not taking it and risking a seizure while pregnant is also bad for the baby. If your doctor prescribes this drug, you will need more Folic Acid than others and extra vitamin k in the last month of the pregnancy.
