Fetal trimethadione syndrome
What is fetal trimethadione syndrome?
Fetal trimethadione syndrome is a collection of birth defects that occur when a mother takes the medication trimethadione (brand name Tridione®) during pregnancy.
Most people take trimethadione to treat their petite mal or absence seizures. It is important that you do not stop taking trimethadione on your own without talking to your doctor. Having seizures during pregnancy can lead to other health issues for you and your baby.
