Emylibef asked 3 years ago

Okay, so I’m new. Very new.
 
I was put on Carbatrol about 2.5 weeks ago since out of nowhere I started up with pretty severe seizures.
 
Now my period’s late.  
 
Someone please tell me that the Carbatrol has contributed to this? I’m going quietly mad.

Get a pregnancy test kit anyhow. And a doctor.

Well you, my savior…and the HPT I took this afternoon…have eased my mind. The doctor part comes on Friday…should be interesting.
