I am currently taking focalin and lamictal, and have become pregnant extremely unexpectedly. While the "logical" thing to do would be to get an abortion, according to some, I just can't bring myself to do it,just can't. I am a graduate student and cannot function without my medication. If I do not study I do not have housing or income. So in the case I think the benifit outweighs the risk from an emotional stanpoint. But, will my baby be ok?
i am ADD and my neurologist warns of serious dangers of becoming pregnant while taking these drugs they are extremely dangerous and detrimental to you when pregnant and to your fetus it can seriously damage it and lead to serious birth defects if it is carried to term some which include physical abnormalities and mental retardation or disability.... You would be best to talk to your doctor and i would not recommend carrying the child to term if you have continued to take your medicine.
