Hello and welcome to Healthcare Magic. Thanks for your query.
Valparin Chrono is an ant-epileptic medication, which is used commonly for the treatment of seizure
disorders as well as a mood stabilizer
- to treat psychiatric disorders. Taking Valparin in pregnancy
can slightly increase the risk of congenital defects in the baby.
However, the decision whether to continue the medication or not will depend on the nature of your illness for which it has been prescribed. So, please discuss this with your doctor before making any treatment decisions. Taking Folic acid
supplements can decrease the risk of problems to the fetus due to Valparin.
Wish you all the best.
