    Ask your OB/GYN rather than the Internet!

    While there are standard answers to many questions, when it comes to pregnancy and what you can and cannot take during your pregnancy, it's best to ask your doctor. Your doctor knows your medical history, knows what's going on in your pregnancy, knows the other medications (if any) that you're taking. It's really best not to rely on the internet when it comes to what you can or cannot take during your pregnancy, because like you, your pregnancy is unique, one of a kind, and not something you want to take chances with.

    rhawkinsss, it's good to be an educated consumer of any drug, whether prescription, over over the counter, or even a supplement.
    If you google this drug, you will see that it is class C.
    That means that there could be risk in pregnancy, but it hasn't been determined.
    Scientists can't just give it to a bunch of pregnant women to see how they react. All they can do is examine medical records to see if they can find patterns in women who do take the drug while pregnant.

    Your DOCTOR has to weigh the benefits against the risks, in light of your entire history and current health.
    That is why this is ONLY a question for your doctor.
