    Hi GNCD68,


    Spironolactone is a assigned to pregnancy category B by the FDA, some experts argue that is should be category D. This is because there is not data from controlled human studies that show a risk, even though animal studies and retrospective reviews have shown increased risk.


    I recommend discussing with your physician to weigh the pros and cons of taking the medication while pregnant.


    All the best,

    Lisa Nelson RD
