General Surgeon 's  Response
there are some medicines which are not to be used during pregnancy for their advsrese effect on the foetus.
Carbamezapine is one of such medicines .
You are already in 9 months of pregnancy and you should discuss this with your doctor .
Hope your baby is all right in you and every thing turns out normal.
