I have been on Depakote for generalized epilepsy since I was diagnosed at 13 years old. I am 31 now, and my husband and I would like to consider having a baby in the near future. My neurologist and gynecologist are both recommending a switch from Depakote to Lamictal, but I am so nervous. Depakote has been my safety net and has controlled my seizures so well. Had anyone else gone through this switch and willing to share their experience? Has anyone had a baby while taking Depakote and willing to share their experience? Thanks so much in advance!
