Epilepsy Drug Linked to Low IQ

Epilepsy Drug Linked to Low IQ

There are 7 comments on the WebMD Health News story from May 4, 2007, titled Epilepsy Drug Linked to Low IQ. In it, WebMD Health News reports that:

“We really can't say which drug is best to use in pregnancy, but we can say that valproate should not be used as the first drug of choice by women with epilepsy during childbearing years if at all possible”

Women of childbearing age should avoid taking the commonly prescribed epilepsy drug valproate because of a negative effect on their children's IQ, researchers say. via WebMD Health News

I have ordered prescription drugs (without a prescription) online from http://inhousegeneric.info about two years ago, and was pleased with the speed and quality of service.
I'm thinking of doing the same thing with my medication. The meds is expensive, but there is a generic version available overseas.
I love the idea of taking responsibility for my own health (or lack of health) and skipping the bureaucracy... to say nothing of having to drive to the doctor, wait in line, yet again, to get a prescription refilled.

Ive been on Kepra for a few years like 3 . I had some problems with anger from it and a handful of other thing upper respatory problems they went away but over all my mental health was greatly affected by this medication Ive recently been switched to limictal or lamotrigine super low dose like 200 mg . its suppoed to have less side effects . honesty I thing you should dose your kids food with cbds or thc or hash oil. its the only thing that works and isnt going to long term screw entire life up. Since Ive moved to a medicinal state and stopped taking any medications at all Ive had no seizures while medicating as needed with a vaporizer for unsetting seirzures and edibles in the morning or at night to keep me medicated through out the day . and companys are making just cbd edibles so you can go that route if it helps but thc has been healing peopl for our entire species lifetime. depends on case tho and Im not a doctor I realize this but the answers you seek for this problem will be covered with a surplus of medication that somone somewhere is making money off of . order some seeds talk to somone localy add water heal.

Naturally, I am skeptical of everything online. http://inhousegeneric.com is legitimate. I placed my first order for the smallest amount possible. It arrived sooner than expected. I didn't pay the extra money for speedy air mail. I placed another order that was much larger and it came right on time. I will definitely use this company again for even larger orders now that I trust them. They also give you discounts every time you place an order which is cool. One thing to keep in mind is if you place a larger order, they will send half in one shipment, and then the other half after that to avoid customs scrutinizing your package. I am very happy, I no longer need to pay tons of money to see a doctor and therapist (and have them tell me a bunch of stuff I already know) in order to get my medication.

have been researching for months and reading reviews for each pharmacy and finally decided to take the plunge and order from one. After coming to the conclusion http://goo.gl/9Me2E1 seemed the most safest and had the best feedback I ordered my pills. Was very apprehensive at first due to cc fraud, ell and they are good i would definetely recommend and purchase againspam and being generally ripped off (have not received one spam email and no cc fraud) order process and checkout was simple.
placed my order on my debit card and was charged straight away and received confirmation email immediately. choose the speedy del trackable and was advised del would be 7-9 days and order was placed on the 08/01. was just about to email them today to chase up as now 15 days but behold package had been posted through my door. packaging seems as shown on webiste. apart from small delay on advertised shipping time i have been generally please with the pharmacy.
wont be taking the pills for another few weeks yet but all going well and they are good i would definetely recommend and purchase again from them.
