  • I'm thinking no. Tylenol is pretty much the only medication that you can take. But I would ask your OBGYN or dermatologist.

  • I doubt it. I would stop until you ask the doc. I know there are lots of acne medication that is not safe to use while pregnant.

  • most likely ur doc will tell u to wait during ur first trimester to use it.... i didnt use it until i was around 23 weeks, but than again i didnt order it until than lol... but i have googled it, asked my doc, everything.... and i believe its totally fine.
