Anyone have experience with having a seizure disorder and then getting pregnant? My sister has a seizure disorder of unknown origin or even possibly meniere's disease and is on lots of medicine to control it. If she misses a dose, she has fainting spells, seizures, dizziness, can't even walk down a hall.

Well, she's pregnant now (not planned). And has a major episode at work yesterday. She is on neurontin, valium, hydrochlorothiazide, antivert and zoloft. She is very worried about weighing the benefits vs. the risks.

Any experience? We read online that activity can increase during pregnancy?
