I am a 30 year old female. I am 8 weeks pregnant. I have been having epilepsy since 10 years. I had the last seizure a year ago. I am taking the following tablets: tablet Tegretol CR 200 (1-0-2), tablet Frisium 5 mg (0-0-2) and tablet Folic acid 5 mg (0-0-1). Can I take these tablets when I am pregnant?
Welcome to icliniq.com.
Tablet Tegretol should not be used in pregnancy. Only pregnancy-safe drugs should be taken during pregnancy. It is categorized as category D of FDA drugs in pregnancy. Category D means, there is enough evidence that it causes risk to the fetus.
So, I would advise you to get back to your neurologist and discuss with him to shift you on safer anti-epileptics like Levetiracetam.
Thank you doctor,
I will consult my doctor for Tegretol CR 200. Could you please answer on tablet Frisium as this is of a concern. Also why is Susten 200 suggested? Are there any consequences with Susten? Is 129 bpm that low?
