The treatment of bipolar disorder in pregnant women and the postpartum period is a complex clinical issue requiring careful consideration of the risks involved in using psychotropic medications versus the benefits of successfully managing this chronic illness. We present three cases of women exposed to lamotrigine during pregnancy and breastfeeding, with follow up of their infants until 15-18 months of development.
