In brief: No

Category c/d/d, interesting because most drugs are of most concern in 1st trimester but this combination drug has been shown to cause problems in humans fetus in last 2 trimesters.
Not considered safe in breast feeding either but really unknown. May need to be used in a life threatening situation where mother's life is at risk without it.
