Is It Possible For Pregnant Women To Take Anti-epileptic Drugs?
I have epilepsy from 2004, I don’t know why. And I’ve been taking medicine from 2019, thank God it’s never been convulsing. But this March 2020 I am pregnant. Is it okay to take antiepileptic drugs?

Good afternoon. Thank you for asking HealthReplies.com.
In connection with the condition of epilepsy that is experienced accompanied by pregnancy, this should immediately consult a doctor, especially your obstetrician. Because the condition of epilepsy or seizure seizures should be avoided because it can interfere with blood circulation to the placenta which may be able to interfere with fetal development. But on the other hand on some epilepsy drugs are category D which is dangerous for the fetus so there will be adjustments regarding treatment. Apart from that a number of things that are also done are
Consumption of folic acid vitamins which will reduce the risk of neurological disorders in the baby or fetus
Perform routine checks to the obstetrician
Drug dosage levels should be adjusted with an obstetrician
