Hi, Me!

 

Midrin is FDA pregnancy category C, which means studies have shown the drug to be harmful to animal embryos, but there are no controlled studies in women. The benefit to the mother must be weighed against the risk to the baby.

 

Is the doctor who is caring for you and your pregnancy the same doctor who treats you for Migraines? If not, the two doctors should consult about what medications are safe for you while you're pregnant.

 

Please remember to discuss all your medications, including over-the-counter meds and supplements, with your doctor.

 

Good luck,

Eileen Gray
