Is it safe to take verapamil during pregnancy?

Not 1st choice. Usually not the first choice, there are other blood pressure medications which are considered safer for the fetus, like aldomet, (methyldopate) but let your doctor try and decide. It's very important to have your blood pressure well controlled.I have used verapamil, if Aldomet (methyldopate) doesn't work or Aldomet (methyldopate) doesn't control it.
