Not recommended: Pregnant women should take only prenatal vitamins as they will be sure to get needed folic acid that they contain. Your pharmacist can recommend one.

.: If not pregnant should not cause any problems. Take the medication bottle to your physician to check why you shouldn't take it during pregnancy.
