The AED Pregnancy Registry is dedicated to determine the safety of anticonvulsant medications that can be taken by women during pregnancy to treat disorders such as epilepsy, mood disorder, and chronic pain. The primary goal is to determine the frequency of major malformations, such as heart defects, spina bifida and cleft lip, in the infants exposed during pregnancy to anticonvulsant drugs.

Who is eligible?
Any woman who is currently pregnant and is taking AEDs (antiepileptic drugs) for any reason can enroll in the Registry. A woman enrolls herself by calling us toll-free at 1-888-233-2334. Participation involves only 3 brief telephone interviews. The first interview is at the time of enrollment, the second takes place in the 7th month of pregnancy, and the third is conducted a few months after delivery.
