In brief: Safe

Aldomet is one of the oldest medicines to treat chronic high blood pressure in pregnancy and is believed to be safe.
Many doctors also use Procardia (nifedipine) or labetolol.

In brief: Yes

This is a central acting medicine for management of high blood pressure.
It is an old but safe & effective treatment, though many feel there are better medicines available now for high blood pressure in pregnancy.
