Pregnancy and Medication Use
Are you pregnant and taking medicines? You are not alone. Many women need to take medicines when they are pregnant. There are about six million pregnancies in the U.S. each year, and 50% of pregnant women say that they take at least one medicine. Some women take medicines for health problems, like diabetes, morning sickness or high blood pressure that can start or get worse when a woman is pregnant. Others take medicines before they realize they are pregnant.
Talk to your doctor, and learn more by participating in an online Twitter chat next Thursday, October 27, from 2 to 3 PM ET using #FDApregnancychat. The Food and Drug Administration's Office on Women's Health will be hosting a discussion with other partners to spread the word on safe medication use and answer questions from the public.
