Category C: Nisoldipine carries a pregnancy category c warning. This means it is dangerous to fetal animals but has no data in humans. Therefore, its use is left up to the discretion of the prescribing doctor and patient. Talk to your obstetrician about its use and alternatives if needed.

No: Do you mean misoprostol? Not safe if you are pregnant. This will lead to a potential miscarriage.

Uncertain: Most experts recommend against it in pregnacy as it can cause a decrease in uterine tone and colic in babies when nursing.
