Is it safe to take domperidone during pregnancy?

Category C: Domperidone is rated pregnancy category c. That is, "animal reproduction studies have shown an adverse effect on the fetus and there are no adequate and well-controlled studies in humans, but potential benefits may warrant use of the drug in pregnant women despite potential risks." so, if you can avoid it, I would. As always, talk with your doc about it. There may be other ways to help lactation.

Is domperidone (vomistop) safe in pregnancy? Can it contribute if taken in early pregnancy in sever skeletal dysplasia?

Safety unknown: The safety of domperidone in pregnancy remains unknown. In a prospective study, 120 1st- trimester pregnant women taking domperidone were compared against 212 age-matched pregnant women not exposed to any potential teratogenic agent. There were three babies born with malformations in each group. Pending more data, its not worth risking your child. Ref: http://www. Ncbi. Nlm. Nih. Gov/pubmed/23445139

Is it safe to take cyotec during pregnancy?

Is it safe to take cyotec during pregnancy?

Yes: Cytotec (misoprostol) is an abortifacient when used in the first trimester and second, and would only be used for termination or delivery of a dead or nonviable fetus. In the third trimester, and in much smaller doses, Cytotec (misoprostol) is used for ripening of the cervix prior to induction of labor. It is associated with more frequent abnormal heart rate tracings, but is generally not dangerous if used judiciously.

Is it safe to take loprin during pregnancy?

Is it safe to take loprin during pregnancy?

Suggest not: The literature goes back and forth, but some of it indicates that aspirin may cause harmful effects to the unborn, so the safest bet is to avoid it. If you are using it for pain or fever, Tylenol may be a suitable alternative, assuming you don’t have any conditions that prevent you from taking it and are not already taking a prescription drug with acetaminophen, the active ingredient in Tylenol

Is it safe to take pantogar during pregnancy.?

Is it safe to take pantogar during pregnancy.?

Insufficient data: There are few if any studies of the safety and efficacy, as well as quality control of non-prescription meds & supplements. According to the manufacturer there is not enough information to say whether or not this supplement is safe in kids under 12 and that pregnant or breastfeeding women should check with their doc first. It is always best/safest to get vitamins and minerals from a healthy diet.

Is it safe to take metanx during pregnancy?

Not known: No research has been done to see if metanx is safe for use during pregnancy. The U.S. Food and drug admin.

Medical foods do not require fda approval, and are not assigned a pregnancy category. Animal studies show no risk, discuss w OB dr.
