Re do test: You should repeat the test. Use first morning urine and follow the instructions for the test carefully. If a correctly done test is negative at 7-10 days after a missed period, you not likely to be pregnant. See this site for info on your drug. http://www.webmd.com/drugs/2/drug-17984-5005/trileptal-oral/oxcarbazepine-oral/details#uses

Trileptal: Trileptal shouldn't affect your periods. You could be pregnant. Try waiting a week and repeat the home pregnancy test.
