Hello Doctor, I am 6 months pregnant and have been prescribed Argipreg sachet 1 daily for 30 days. My question is what is use of this medicine during pregnancy and is it safe to use? Also does it contain steroids? if it is for baby's growth then would it result in a big baby? my reports are normal so far, hence wondering why the need of this drug.

hello,

Argipreg sachet contains L-Arginine which is an amino acid. It is usually given for IUGR baby for better growth & development.

It doesn't contain steroid and it is quite safe for your baby. It helps to improve feto-placental circulation. So, it can be taken as per your doctor's suggestion.
