In brief: No

There are no medications safe while pregnant.
It is a balance in between the risk of harming your baby and hurting your health. Some medications have been studied more in pregnant women, and results show that they do not harm the intrauterine growth or do not cause malformations. Consulting with a specialist is mandatory if you get pregnant while taking any drug.
