  • Medication Use During Pregnancy












  • Medication Use During Pregnancy

    Exposure to medication during pregnancy is common. A woman in the United States will fill an average of three non-vitamin prescriptions during her pregnancy, and over-the-counter medication use is even more frequent.

    Medications might be used in early pregnancy because a woman may not yet know she is pregnant. In other cases, a woman might have to take medications during pregnancy to treat an acute or a chronic disease, such as a bladder infection or epilepsy.

    The effects of most medications on the unborn child are not well known. This lack of information limits the counseling that can be offered to a woman after an inadvertent exposure or in making choices about the best medication to use to treat a serious maternal condition during pregnancy.

    A woman who has taken medication during pregnancy might experience stress and anxiety because the effect of the drug on her unborn child is unknown. Alternatively, she might forgo critical medicine because of concerns about the safety of her unborn child.
