Im 5 weeks pregnant and need to take malaria tablet Chloroquine for a pre booked trip.Has anyone ever taken these while pregnant?
This from https://www.drugs.com/pregnancy/chloroquine.html
"Chloroquine has not been formally assigned to a pregnancy category by the FDA. There are no controlled data in human pregnancies.
Chloroquine should only be given during pregnancy when need has been clearly established"
In other words you should try and avoid taking chloroquine whilst pregnant.
Do you need to go on the trip? Is malaria a real threat?
