Cynthia L. Harden, MD, from the Mount Sinai Health System discussed this recent study during the American Academy of Neurology's annual meeting in Vancouver. While women with epilepsy do need to be monitored for their condition and pay special attention to their medication, Harden said that becoming pregnant is no more difficult for this patient population than others without the condition.
