Hello.

Thanks for writing to us.
During early pregnancy, ARG-9 sachets are given to increase the placental circulation, for better growth of baby and to reduce the chances of an early miscarriage. These are safely prescribed in pregnancy and may be continued till full term to avoid growth retardation and preterm labor.
I hope this information has been both informative and helpful for you.

Regards,

Dr. Rakhi Tayal
