Topomax and Pregnancy
Any women who have been on this medication and gone through a pregnancy? Your input is appreciated
Reese99 - Your wife will need to speak to her doctor about her usage of Topamax during pregnancy and she should only be taking it if the benefits outweigh the risks. There are really no good human studies on the effects of this drug during pregnancy, but in animal studies, it has proven to be toxic and causes fetal malformations. There are new post-marketing studies that show that males born to mothers on topamax have developmental problems with their urethra. I don't know what she is taking Topamax for...maybe seizures or migraines. If she has seizures, it is important to make sure that is under control as that can be detrimental to the baby as well.
