From this study (1 day ago):
Lamictal has not had a significant impact on the condition I supposedly have (bipolar disorder). So the doctor keeps increasing it. Now the doctor has added Latuda (just a couple of weeks ago). Anyway, vomiting/nausea has been going on moderately for several months and I've had a number of blood tests. My most recent ones (last week) showed a lipase level 3 times the normal. Has this been seen in others who take Lamictal?

severe birth defects--dandy walker syndrome--club feet--cardiac abnormalities
devastated gma on Mar, 8, 2014:
My 28 yr. old daughter has been on Effexor XR about 10 yrs. for bipolar disorder. Before she & her husband decided to get pregnant, she consulted with a high pregnancy risk OB/GYN MD.He advised to stop the Effexor if possible but she was very fearful to this. He said the drug warnings you see on TV are grossly exaggerated. He even did Effexor med.search while she was there to see if there were any updates he was unaware of & none were found. She did become pregnant & again was assured by OB/GYN that she was safe to cont. the med. The pregnancy was uneventful until the 4 month ultrasound revealed SEVERE problems!!--DANDY WALKER VARIANT ( in this fetus there was almost NO BRAIN!!! ), club feet & cardiac abnormalities. The gene studies were normal. This new high-risk MD said Effexor was not to blame.I DO NOT BELIEVE IT !!!!! DANDY WALKER is listed as one of the possible birth defects.I cannot find the info. I need such as how often do these occur. Of course the majority of birth defects web sites are from attorneys !!!! Can anyone help me ?? THANK--YOU !!! xoxo
