Hi, has anyone breastfed while being on Lamictal? I will also ask my neurologist during my next visit, just want to know if someone has an experience with it or if it had any side affect on the baby. I am on 2x100mg per day. Thank you.
Breastfeeding with Lamictal: Hi, has anyone... - Epilepsy Action
Lucia257: I just found out that you need to clean your teeth well after taking Lamotrigine (Lamictal). Clean well both sides of the teeth and as soon as you can after taking that medication
If you want to breastfeed taking epilepsy medicines shouldn’t usually stop you. But talk to your midwife or infant feeding adviser first, for advice about how to breastfeed safely. The advice they give will depend on the epilepsy medicine you are taking as well as your baby’s health and the type of seizure you have.
We have some more information about pregnancy, birth, breastfeeding and looking after a baby on our website that you might find helpful.
