Hi,
Thanks for the query.
Frisium -10 is contraindicated in first 3 months of pregnancy, as it affects fetal development.After 4th month onward it can be taken with precaustionunder a doctor's guidance.. if he feels that it's benefit overweighs the risk.
So, I would advise to get a expert opinion of neurosurgeon for alternative & safe drug & start it & get adjusted with it..while pregnancy is planned.
Thanks.
