Neonatal behaviour disturbances in infants of epileptic women treated during pregnancy



Neonatal behaviour disturbances in infants of epileptic women treated during pregnancy



Progress in Clinical and Biological Research 163b: 453-461



Infants exposed in utero to antiepileptic drugs showed significantly more behaviour disturbances such as sedation (p less than 0.05) and hyperexcitability (p less than 0.01) than infants of a control group. The presence of these clinical symptoms and the time of their appearance did not seem to be dependent on the type of maternal medication, nor on the drug serum concentration in cord blood nor on the rate of drug disappearance from the infant's plasma.
