Medication During Pregnancy

medication-picDuring the first trimester it is extremely important to avoid all medications, including suppositories and vaginal creams. During this time there is rapid development of the fetus and it is felt that certain medications could produce harmful effects, especially during this period.

 

If you are already on medication prescribed by another doctor, please let us know on your first visit. We will work with your primary care physician and/or specialist to ensure that the medication is appropriate, before taking it.

 

We would hope to have you avoid medications during pregnancy, but it is understood there are times when the benefits far outweigh the risks posed by the condition requiring medication. Please remember you are asked to avoid all medications in the first trimester unless prescribed for you. Please call during office hours if you have any questions regarding medications.
