I am 21 weeks pregnant and I have SVT but no high blood pressure. My doctor perscribed Labetalol 100. mg twice a day. Is that the safest drug to take with SVT or is there a safer one?

I'm not sure if this is the safest drug for use during pregnancy. You obstetrician should know, and they have prescribed it then it would be best for you.
The link below has names of other medicines which can be used for SVT. (Labetalol is a betablocker).
