Question: Avandia during pregnancy
|ananiahrivera - Tue Jul 12, 2005 12:52 am||
I would like to know if avandia is safe during pregnancy.
I have PCOS and to help me conceive, my OB gave me clomid 100mg/day + 1 avandia 4mg/day. She said that I should take this up until the early stage of pregnancy.
Today, I learned that I'm pregnant (+ HPT) but since my OB was not available, I consulted another one. I told her the meds that I'm taking but she said that I should stop avandia right away because it could harm the fetus.
I'm also taking duvadilan and duphaston 3x/day.
Who should I follow, should I stop the avandia or not. What are the effects if I stop avandia? I'm on my fourth week, my last period was June 11, 2005.

Avandia (rosiglitazone) is contra-indicated in pregnancy. The manufacturer advises "avoid in pregnancy - toxicity seen in animal studies".
