Brief Answer: Hi Detailed Answer: Hi Thanks for posting your query on XXXXXXX There is insufficient evidence in medical literature about safety of medicine Ocid (omeprazole) in pregnancy. You are right in stating that it is category C medicine. I would avoid prescribing category C medicine to my patients during pregnancy. Omeprazole is prescribed for gastric acidity related symptoms. I cannot think of the rationale of prescribing omeprazole for wisdom tooth extraction. You need to check with the prescribing doctor. Take care Dr Vaishalee
