Can You Take Promethazine When You Are Pregnant

Hi, I was wondering if you can take promethazine when you are pregnant?

Answer

This is something you should talk about with your Dr. The drug does not appear to cause congenital malformations in fetuses but it hasn't been particularly well studied either. There is a question as to whether it can cause problems during labor. There doesn't appear, from the sites I looked at, to be any hard evidence that the drug is doing harm - but they recommend that you talk with your physician about it. It's called a category C. drug regarding pregnancy. Good luck!
