Thanks for the query.

according to FDA, Telekast L comes into category B in pregnancy,
means animal studies didn't show any adverse effects on fetus but there no controlled human studies, so as benefits over weigh risks here you can use it,
along with this better to use natural remedies in pregnancy which will be similarly effective and with no side effects,
