In brief: Oxaminoquine

Fda category c : which implies that animal reproduction studies have shown an adverse effect on the fetus.
There are no adequate and well-controlled studies in humans, and the benefits from the use of the drug in pregnant women may be acceptable despite its potential risks. However, during the first 53 days of pregnancy, when all the organs are being formed, any drug or toxin can affect the fetus.

In brief: Maybe not.

Oxamniqine is a medication used to treat parasitic infections.
The medication is not available in the USA. It is listed as a catagory C medication during pregnancy. If you have been prescribed it and are pregnant, make sure you talk to your doctor about options, what to expect and any effects it may have on your pregnancy.
