On the strength of this below, I wouldn't touch it.

"Pregnancy
Pregnancy Category C

There are no adequate and well-controlled studies of Silenor in pregnant women. Silenor should be used during pregnancy only if the potential benefit justifies the potential risk to the fetus. Administration of doxepin to pregnant animals resulted in adverse effects on offspring development at doses greater than the maximum recommended human dose (MRHD) of 6 mg/day."
