hello,
the drugs prescribed by your doctor are safe.
during pregnancy certain drugs can be harmful to the child as it is in the stage of development.
i would advise you not to give your wife any medications without a prescription.
consult your gynecologist before you take any medication.
good food and a good emotional support wil help her better.
congratulations to you and your wife.
i hope i have answered your query
take care

Hi Welcome to HCM,
Xenax is a trade name of Alprazolam.
The U S. Food and Drug Administration (FDA) uses a category system to classify the possible risks to a fetus when a specific medicine is taken during pregnancy.this drug is categorized under category D,these are unreaserched drugs,A pregnancy Category D medicine may still be given to a pregnant woman if the healthcare provider believes that the benefits to the woman outweigh the possible risks to the unborn child.if these drugs use during early pregnancy may increase the risk of birth defects, while use during later pregnancy can cause withdrawal symptoms in a newborn.
So better dont take that tablet for simple reason.

i think i cleared your querry.

Thanks for visiting HCM

have a Happy pregnancy
Bye
