I have researched the medicine and it says its "assigned to pregnancy category C". I really need to get my tourettes under control but my husband and I are also trying to get pregant. Can I take this while trying to become pregant? How about during first trimester. Has anyone taken this while being pregant?
Pregnancy category "C" means that safety is uncertain. Data from human studies do not exist and animal studies have shown some question of risk to the fetus. Pregnant women may take these if they clearly need them.
No one can give you a definitive answer to your question because there simply are no human studies... sorry not to be more helpful.
