It isn't recommended: This is a combination medication for diabetes. One of the medications may make the placenta not function as well, leading to small babies and other complications. In addition, both medications cross the placenta and we don't know much about how they affect the baby. If you are pregnant and taking this medication, contact your doctor right away. Don't stop it until your doctor tells you to.
