Medication During Pregnancy

Acetaminophen is one of the safest medications during pregnancy, according to Doctor Alberto Sirven, Obstetrician-Gynecologist at West Kendall Baptist Hospital, who also adds that ibuprofen is contraindicated.

The woman has to discuss with her doctor about which medications she can take and why, he says. It’s important to disclose all the medications, including vitamins, because, as the doctor explains, it’s not a good idea to take all vitamins during pregnancy.

Taking less than 200 milligrams of caffeine per day is the recommendation during pregnancy. It means 1 cup of coffee should be good enough, he argues.
