1 doctor agrees
In brief: NO
No no no! perindopril and other ace inhibitors are teratogenic and can cause the baby to die in utero or be born with severe malformations (no kidneys).
Please do not take this if you are or are planning on becoming pregnant. It is not known is this drug goes into breast milk, but i would not take it if nursing either.
