Selzic contains oxacarbazepine,
which is prescribed as anti convulsant.
It is category C drug in pregnancy means, studies on animals showed adverse effects on fetus but studies on humans are lacking.
So, you better discuss with your doctor if he can suggest any alternative,
If he says that the drug is beneficial to you in spite of chances of some risk to the baby you can continue it.
Take care
