Hi everyone. My name is Beth. I just looked up this group and found you guys. I have been researching things on the internet for the past few days and just want to smack my head on my keyboard out of frustration! Lol. Let me introduce myself first. Haha. Again, Im Beth. I have Epilepsy. I am 7 weeks pregnant. This will be my third child. I wasn't diagnosed with Epilepsy until after my 2nd was born. After I had him is when I started to have seizures. I take Keppra and Topomax to control my seizures.
Well, that's enough backstory for now. Do any of you have ANY experience in this at all?! I have been advised by my regular ob gyn and my high risk ob gyn to go completely off the Topomax because of the risk of Cleft Palate and Hair Lip. My neurologist decided as of yesterday that at eight weeks I need to INCREASE my Topomax. Help! Im sooo confused! Im in the process of getting a second opinion by the way. :) Thanks!
