org/ I consulted the studies on the site, along with speaking with my psychiatrist about taking the medication I am on, Lamictal, while pregnant
. (I am bipolar and
the risk of relapse while pregnant and
not taking meds is very, very high, which can be dangerous to the fetus, so I chose to stay on the med, take extra folic acid, and pray for the best.) Definitely talk to both the ob/gyn and prescribing psychiatrist to determine if benefits of med outweigh risks.
