In brief: Possibly

This drug is absolutely contraindicated in all woman who are pregnant and those who "may" become pregnant.
That being said i can not find information on how long a patient needs to be off the drug before it is safe to conceive. There is an extensive data base on this drug in pregnancy. It would be a good idea to consult a perinatologist and or a genetic counselor.
