Are Epilepsy and Mood Disorder Medications Safe to Take during Pregnancy?
Let’s work together to help find answers.
The North American Antiepileptic Drug (AED) Pregnancy Registry is a non-profit organization housed at Massachusetts General Hospital understanding the effects of anticonvulsant medications during pregnancy.
Our study involves phone interviews only. No needles, no medications, and no changes to your normal routine are required. We’ll use the information you supply to provide future answers for you and mothers just like you.
“I participated because there should be more information out there, and if I could help other women with this important decision it will be better for women in the future who have take these medications.” – Rachael, 33, Kansas
The North American AED Pregnancy Registry was established in 1997 for pregnant women in the United States and Canada at the Massachusetts General Hospital in Boston, Massachusetts. It is the first hospital-based registry established to determine the safety of seizure medications that can be taken by women during pregnancy. We are very grateful to the 10,200 women who have enrolled so far. Mothers just like you.
