Hi guys. I’ve got epilepsy because of a lesion (yay), and talking to my gp, hes said that when I do start trying for kids, to discuss with him first because of my lamotrigine. So, obviously, I’ve looked on the bnf (a very good resource for looking at meds, and its what health professionals use) and women have to be careful when using lamotrigine because of an increased risk of defects in a foetus. I have never *ever* been told about this, from my consultant to my ms nurses, absolute nada. Nor previous gp’s at home or uni. Has anyone else experienced this? Has anyone else had a child while on lamotrigine? Obviously, me and my partner want to have kids, and again, I’m wary of meds and pregnancy like ocrelizumab. 🙈
