Older-generation AEDs have been associated with a two- to threefold increased risk for major congenital malformations in the offspring exposed to these agents in utero (17,18). Such risks, however, have to be balanced against the fetal and maternal risks associated with uncontrolled epileptic seizures during pregnancy (17). The strategy has been to use the appropriate AED for the patient’s type of epilepsy in monotherapy at the lowest effective dosage to maintain seizure control throughout pregnancy.

Of note, the ILAE guidelines are probably the strictest and most demanding with respect to assessment of the available evidence and, as a result, leave the practitioner with little guidance in many instances. The National Institute of Clinical Excellence (NICE) in the United Kingdom has also issued evidence-based guidelines, specifically assessing the role of the newer-generation AEDs (13). They conclude that evidence does not suggest differences in effectiveness in seizure control between newer and older AEDs in monotherapy.
