Hello, I’m a 25 year old pregnant woman with epilepsy and I’m on 2000mg of keppra a day. I really need answers from the epileptic moms out there, the questions I have are:
- Do I have to worry about breastfeeding while on keppra? Will it have any affects on my baby?
- I am very scared of having a seizure while my husband is at work and I’m home alone holding my baby, any advice on how to prevent this?
- New moms never get enough sleep and lack of sleep causes more seizures, how can I prevent having more seizures with the lack of sleep?
Also, if you are a mother with epilepsy do you have any advice in general you would like to give to a soon to be mother with epilepsy? Thank you.
