Kimford J. Meador, MD speaks about the neurodevelopment effects of combination drug exposure in women with epilepsy at the American Epilepsy Association 2014 Annual Meeting.

Meador commented, "There are a lot of seizure medications that we don't understand the risks or the combinations very well. Most women with epilepsy go through pregnancy on a single drug, but there's a reasonable subset of anywhere from 20-33% of women that are on polytherapy and we don't know those combinations may increase risks."
