Had taken methyldopa for hypertension during pregnancy. Could that be the reason for miscarriage?

Hi my name is Leticia I just recently had a miscarriage and I was 8 weeks into my pregnancy. I had gone to the doctor s and he told me that everything was fine and that my baby was growing perfect and his heart was good and strong. I also had found out I had hypertension , so he had prescribed me with Methyldopa 250 MG. I would like to know if there is a chance that maybe this medication had something to do with my miscarriage, that it might have effected him or her in any way?

Hi Leticia,
I don't think the miscarriage which you had related to methyl dopa. it is a safe drug.
Hypertension alone can sometimes cause miscarriage.
Methyldopa will not harm the growing foetus, so you can safely carry on.
Have a strict control of your BP.
All the best.
