Anti-epileptics in pregnancy mnemonic

 The choice of antiepileptic drugs for women with epilepsy of childbearing age who are planning a pregnancy are lamotrigine or levetiracetam monotherapy. They are preferred as first-line treatment options because they have the low teratogenic risk of structural and neurodevelopmental during pregnancy. 

Mnemonic: Think of TRImesters in pregnancy. lamoTRIgine and leveTIRacetam have the letters "tri" and "tir" (which is an anagram of "tri") for "tri"mesters of pregnancy!
