False Negative - Topamax? — The Bump
Trying to Get Pregnant

False Negative - Topamax?

AF is 9 days late and I have taken 3 pregnancy test, but all have been negative. I read an article that some anti-convulsant drugs, like Topamax, can cause false negatives. Does anyone know about this?

Re: False Negative - Topamax?

  • Are you on Topamax?  I was on an anti-convulsant to prevent migraines, and was quickly taken off a year ago due to the fact that some anti-convulsants can cause severe birth defects.  I would talk to your MD and look into this before conceiving.

    I'll let some other girls answer your original question ;)

  • You shouldn't be TTC on Topomax at all.  And I am pretty sure there is no such thing as a drug that causes a false negative, only false positives and Topomax isn't one of them.

  • I've googled it and not been able to find anything that says Topamax can cause a false negative... definitely talk to your doctor.
