Hello, I was referred here by a friend to hopefully find some information about breastfeeding while taking Lamictal. I was diagnosed with epilepsy almost 2 years ago, and asked to not become pregnant again. Well, such is life and we are now expecting a little girl in a few weeks after 4 boys.
The lamictal has been great through the pregnancy. We've avoided any visible birth defects, that we know of through ultrasound, and she seems to be growing healthy and on schedule. Now we are to the "do we breastfeed or not" hurdle.
I've done an abundance of my own research. I speak to my neurologist in a few weeks and the pediatrician next week. I was hoping to find someone who has taken Lamictal and successfully breastfed.
Thank you, Jamie
