Decisions, decisions: If the question is whether or not to take a drug during pregnancy that has neither proven benefit nor proven harm, the answer would be, "Don't take a medication during pregnancy unless it has a known benefit." If the chances of a successful or an unsuccessful pregnancy are not predicted to change, with or without the added drug, then there is no need to take it. What will be will be.
