Thank you for posting your query.
I wish to reassure you that most women with epilepsy, who are taking epilepsy medicines, have a normal pregnancy
and normal baby.
However, epilex chrono (sodium valproate
) is the least preferred medicine for pregnant women, as it has the highest incidence of adverse effects in pregnancy.
So, I would request you to meet your neurologist
and change epilex chrono with other safe medications.
In addition, use folic acid
