Yes: It is a pregnancy category c drug. This means there are no definitive studies in humans or there is a suggestion of possible negative effects through animal studies or observational studies. Like all drugs, don't use unless you need to.

Sure: Imiquimod could cause adverse effects for an individual, however it is well tested and safe for use.
