Ultigra and some more medicines for migrane, would it be safe to take during pregnancy?

Need more info: Fexofenadine, a.K.A. Ultigra, is pregnancy category c = unknown if it causes birth defects during pregnancy, but animal studies suggest some harm to fetus. Most migraine meds are not safe during pregnancy, thus you really need to check with your neurologist how to manage your migraines if you could become pregnant in the near future. Good luck!
