Abstract: There is some doubt whether medication for women who have bipolar disorder and are pregnant should be adjusted during pregnancy or following childbirth. It is possible that adjustment during pregnancy may damage the foetus. Lithium is hardly teratogenic, whereas carbamazepine and valproic acid are teratogenic. The anticonvulsant lamotrigine is also used regularly to treat or prevent bipolar depressive episodes.
