Hi mariansmith2810!
Welcome to vk is classified by the FDA as a pregnancy class B drug. This means that animal studies have proven the drug safe and there have been no observed adverse effects of the drug on the baby, but there has been no large controlled clinical trials specifically showing that the drug is harmless. The classification ranges A, B, C, D, and X, with X being absolutely contraindicated in pregnant women due to documented serious is definately safe to take.
