The new findings also showed that taking folic acid supplements had a protective effect against language impairment in babies born to women who took these drugs. We have previously shown that language impairment and risk of autistic traits at age 1. Similar results regarding in utero AED exposure and language impairment have been reported after valproate exposure, but data regarding carbamazepine exposure and language impairment has been conflicting.

Dr Husebye also warned that data on new antiepileptic drugs, such as levetiracetam, lamotrigine and tompiramate, and their long-term effects on language are lacking. The study population was made up of children of mothers with and without epilepsy enrolled in the Norwegian Mother and Child Cohort study to AED blood concentrations in maternal blood samples were measured at gestational weeks 17 to 19 and sample taken from the umbilical cord directly after birth.

Higher maternal plasma valproate concentrations correlated with language delay at five years. But children of mothers taking periconceptual folic acid supplement had a lower risk of AED-associated language impairment at both ages. Not only valproate but also carbamazepine exposure is associated with language impairment.

Taking folic acid supplements in the periconceptual period, before conception and in early pregnancy, is particularly important for women with epilepsy. Wednesday, September 25, Contact Us Press Releases.
