Trileptal is utilized to stabilize brain electrical activity and prevent seizures. The timing to discontinue it depends on factors such as medical history, dosage, and individual circumstances. To ensure the best and safest condition before pregnancy, it is strongly recommended to consult with a specialized doctor who is familiar with your specific situation. I hope this answers your query.
