my doctor reccomend i continue till my 8th month as my parents are both diabetic.Is this safe for my baby in long run?
Glucophage has a FDA pregnancy category B. This medication is not expected to be harmful to an unborn baby. Tell your doctor if you are pregnant or plan to become pregnant during treatment.
So it should be okay to use. I'm not sure about usual protocols on prescribig this during pregnancy. I know most times for gestational diabetes some doctors prescribe insulin.
Please discuss this with your doctor.
