In brief: No meds before preg
If you are on medicines for cataplexy, you probably should stop them before trying to become pregnant.
If you are not on medicines, cataplexy itself will not harm your pregnancy (unless it puts your life at risk, for example losing muscle tone when laughing while swimming).
