The FDA uses a category system to classify the possible risks to a fetus when a specific medicine is taken during pregnancy. Pregnancy Category D is given to medicines that have shown clear evidence of risk to the fetus in studies. However, a pregnancy Category D medicine may still be given to a pregnant woman if the doctor believes that the benefits to the woman outweigh the possible risks to the unborn child.
Klonopin was given a pregnancy Category D rating due to the problems it caused in animal studies. These studies suggested that Klonopin may increase the risk of various birth defects, including cleft palate and limb defects. However, this is a controversial issue, since some human studies have shown that the risk of birth defects may be very small. Benzodiazepines (such as Klonopin) may also cause other problems, such as withdrawal symptoms after an infant is born.
However, since it is a case of pregnancy, it would be recommended that you seek advice from a gynecologist, please.
Take care, be safe & well.
