PURPOSE To evaluate use of specific antiepileptic drugs (AEDs) in pregnancy in relation to specific birth defects. METHODS Using data from the National Birth Defects Prevention Study, we assessed use of AEDs and the risk of neural tube defects (NTDs), oral clefts (OCs), heart defects (HDs), hypospadias, and other major birth defects, taking specific agent, timing, and indication into consideration. RESULTS Drug-specific increased risks were observed for valproic acid in relation to NTDs… CONTINUE READING
