Can I continue to take drugs for my cardiovascular disease in pregnancy?

By Zaira Salvador.
Last Update: 05/22/2019

Some medications have teratogenic effects for the fetus, so the medical specialist will have to assess the risk-benefit of each of the drugs for both the mother and the baby.

It will be necessary to adjust the dosage of the medicines or change them if there are other safer ones for gestation. However, it should be noted that in the event of a vital emergency, the mother will be given the drugs she requires.
