Pregnancy and breastfeeding

My husband and I are planning on having another baby. I am currently on 250mg of lamictal and 40mg of Onfi. I have been on keppra & zonsomide which didn’t work by itself. Will the medications I’m on now be ok with pregnancy and breastfeeding or should I talk to my neurologist about different medications?


You really should talk to

You really should talk to your neuro. Lamictal is considered one of the safer medications when it comes to pregnancy/breastfeeding. Not sure about Onfi though.
