Hi to you all from DownUnder :-). Is there anyone out there that has been pregnant/had a baby whilst on Lamictal? And did you have any adverse side effects whilst pregnant or your child have any associated birth defects. I have a 4 year old son but was on tegretol at the time and had no problems whatsoever. Although I was well controlled, two years later it was decided that I change to Lamictal as my liver was too sensitive to the drug (even on a low dose) and my LFTs were very abnormal. I am now 36 and we want to have another baby and am concerned about the higher incidence of cleft lip/palette associated with Lamictal. The fact that I am older doesn\'t help either. I am not well controlled at the moment (2 seizures in the last 4 months/year) as we are still trying to determine the right therapeutic dose for me, that is effective and also low enough to pose less risk if I get pregnant. We are not actively trying for a baby at the moment as a direct result of the seizures I had in June and the other just two weeks ago. I would love more info from anyone who can help or who has had a baby while taking Lamictal! Take care.

I'm also going to drink a lot of water and try to eat healthy. I do tend to have a sweet tooth but I'm cutting...
