No estrogen: Evamist is a estrogen supplement approved for relief of menopausal symptoms, like hot flashes. Unsure why a woman in reproductive years would be using it? Nevertheless should not take it unless advised to for off label use by your doctor.

NOT SAFE: It use in pregnancy is contraindicated according to the prescribing information included with the medication by the manufacturer.

Yes: This is usually used for seizures. There are associated birth defects with it. However, not taking the drug and risking a seizure while pregnant is also problematic for mother and baby. If you need to be on this medication then you should take extra Folic Acid and will need some extra vitamin K during the last month of the pregnancy. It is ok with breastfeeding.

Yes*: Halflytely is a laxative - fda class c , which means that animal reproduction studies have shown an adverse effect on the fetus and there are no adequate and well-controlled studies in humans, but potential benefits may warrant use of the drug in pregnant women despite potential risks. It is commonly used after c-sections and unlikely to be of major concern given the short duration of use.

No: We don't have a lot of information on Cilostazol in pregnancy and breastfeeding but in animal studies, it has caused some birth defects. Unfortunately, you may have a medical problem that is best treated with cilostazol. You should talk with your doctor about the risks and benefits.

Maybe: Any food supplement has the potential to be helpful, but may also cause harm. Compounds found in nature often are the basis for medicines in most cultures. Some items can cross into breastmilk but not cross the placenta. For up to date information on what is known about compounds and medications in pregnancy and breastfeeding.
