Teresa today put out a call for evidence about Sodium Valproate and pregnancy in her capacity as Chair of the All Party Parliamentary Group on Anti-Epileptic Drugs and Pregnancy.
Teresa asked for anybody affected to please contact the group to share their experiences.
Are you female and taking Sodium Valproate? Or have you taken it in the past?
If so, we would appreciate hearing from you about your experiences and the advice you received from your Doctor or other medical professional about Sodium Valproate and pregnancy?
We have established the All Party Parliamentary Group for Anti-epileptic Drugs in Pregnancy. The purpose of the group is to help bring together different people who take, or have taken, Sodium Valproate and to share experiences of what sort of advice about pregnancy was given when it was prescribed.
We will be bringing together these different experiences and gathering more evidence on the sorts of advice on pregnancy and Sodium Valproate that has been given.
We would be very interested in hearing from anyone who could share information on this topic.
It is important to note however that you should not take this request for information as advice about what medication to take. Always talk to your Doctor or medical professional before changing medications.
Please email firstname.lastname@example.org if you would like to share your experiences.
Many thanks for your help.
Teresa Pearce, Chair of the All Party Parliamentary Group for Anti-Epileptic Drugs in Pregnancy
