Is the drug of choice in epileptic patients during pregnancy shifting towards using the carbamazepine rather than barbiturates?

ya ...no doubt barbiturates are safest drung in pregnacy but there efficacy is reduced in pregnacy hence it doesnot serve any purpose...so carbamazepine is d.o.c in pregnancy
