How are you doing ?
These medicines are to control the psychiatric problems.
All three drugs do cause defects in the newly formed baby, these defects are usually multiple & not correctable. Carbamazepine
can cause - Spina bifida
, craniofacial defects, cardiovascular malformations, hypospadias
, and anomalies involving various body systems.
But instead of this combination, if used alone, this can be safer
Lithium can cause - heart defect, sudden death of baby etc better avoided in pregnancy
Arip MT is contraindicated in pregnancy, only animal studies are available.
So if I may advise, kindly consult your Neurologist
& change over to less toxic drugs , reduce the dosage gradually under supervision & if possible switch to single drug. Once all stabilized pregnancy will be okay.
This can avoid all the unnecessary anxiety
with the medicines with known teratogenicity.
Hope I have clarified your query, do write back if any more queries
All the best
