OBGYN Dr. Meenakshi T Sahu's  Response
Literature says that it should be avoided in pregnancy as it is a thermogenic product containing plant extracts and caffeine. This drug stimulates thyroid hormone to increase metabolic rate and burn down the fat. Caffeine content in this drug is within the daily recommended daily dose. Effect of this drug on baby are not studied much. You are supposed to see doctor within few days so get an ultrasound for fetal well being done. Check your thyroid hormone status too.

Best wishes,
