Can I Take Aceon When Pregnant?
Pregnancy Category D is given to medicines that have shown clear evidence of risk to the fetus in studies. It is a stronger warning than for pregnancy Category C medicines. Despite these warnings, a pregnancy Category D medicine may still be given to a pregnant woman if her healthcare provider believes that the benefits outweigh the possible risks to the unborn child.
Because of the possible risk that Aceon poses to an unborn child, even during the first trimester of pregnancy, you should tell your healthcare provider if you are pregnant or thinking of becoming pregnant. He or she will consider both the benefits and risks of Aceon during pregnancy before making a recommendation for your particular situation.
In all but the rarest of situations, there are other options for women who are pregnant or could become pregnant.
