In brief: Not recommended

Isentress (raltegravir) is used to treat hiv-1 infections.
It is a pregnancy category c drug meaning there is not enough data to consider it safe. It has caused deformaties and even fetal death in laboratory animals. Talk to yoiur doctor about its use.

In brief: Yes

Actually this is not a simple yes/no question.
You need to discuss your meds with your OB and infectious disease doctor. Do not stop your meds or change them in any way without the direction of your infectious disease doctor.
