I may be pregnant because I missed my period but it is too early at this point to take an over the counter pregnancy test and expect accurate results. I moved to a new city so I have not yet seen a neurologist here and it's been about two years since I saw my last neurologist. I have an appointment with one in my new city on September 11. This is the soonest I can see a neurologist on my current healthcare plan. I am debating whether to stop taking the Lamotrigine until I take an OTC pregnancy test and it comes back negative. Can the Lamotrigine have negative effects this early on in the pregnancy - the first month? I know this is really a question for a neurologist but any thoughts on whether I should stop taking the Lamotrigine for now? I have been seizure free since August 2011 so the Lamotrigine has controlled my seizures well. I have simple and complex partial seizures.
