  • Can someone please help me

    I have a problem and I need someone to help me with it please. i just found out that I am pregnant and I have IC and seizures and high blood pressure. I am not sure if I can take all this medicine. I take lamictal for seizure. I take hydrochlorothiazide for my blood pressure. I take elmiron, gabapentin, and amitriptyline for my IC. Can someone tell if all this is okay with my pregnancy?

    First...Congraulations on you pregnancy.

    With that said...Please see your doctor quickly and ask him/her these questions. Meds need to be regulated by doctors.

        You definitely need to be working with an OB physician.

        And congratulations on the pregnancy!

          looking for member ( PICK PINK )

          [email protected]

          ..........I had read earlier that there is a new member by the name of PICK PINK, however, I can't find the post she had made now. I know she is in Fredericksburg, VA and she stated there is a new dr that specializes in IC......I was wondering if she can contact me at: [email protected] so I can find out what dr she is referring to. I have a best friend in that area and it would be helpfull if I could find out WHO the dr is.

          Thank You
          Pam

            Congratulations! There are many women on this board who have had successful pregnancies, so I'm sure you'll get by just fine. I wish you the best of luck and I hope you enjoy every minute of your pregnancy.
