In brief: Yes

In very limited amounts, not for prolonged use (if taken topically), and after the first trimester. This is also given in a different form to speed up lung maturity when someone is in preterm labor between 24 and 34 weeks, but in limited doses.

In brief: Category C

There are no adequate and well-controlled studies in pregnant women.
Betoptic (betaxolol) ophthalmic solution should be used during pregnancy only if the potential benefit justifies the potential risk to the fetus. Consult your OB and opthalmologist.
