Category C drug: Drugs are classified for pregnancy risk based on available studies. These range from A=safest to X=never safe.This is a category C drug meaning there is no clear data showing harm but not enough research to assign a safer rating. It is common to use when the benefits outweigh risk. I would discuss this with your OB.
