Hi Meena
Welcome to HealthcareMagic.

I would like to have more details about the diagnosis of brain TB.The tablet you are taking is valproic acid and is indicated in treatment of epilepsy.This drug is not safe for your baby.I advise you to get your diagnosis confirmed and get appropriate treatment for the same.

Please feel free to ask any further question by posting comment here or mailing me.

Take care.

There is no totally safe anti epileptic drug ....almost all are teratogenic & also anti tubercular drugs should be used cautiously & judiciously - they too are teratogenic . moreover you have been too late to consider this.Organogenesis of the fetus is quite complete by this time .its just the growth & nourishment phase .... you should go for ultrasound for fetal wellbeing and meet a neurologist and your gynae dr FOR FURTHER PROGNOSIS
