  • Accutane is a huge no-no. you have to sign a waiver saying that you'll have an abortion if you get pregnant while on it. the birth defects are that severe. after that I have no idea.

  • There is not much known on the effects of medications while pregnant because they cannot (and shouldn't) do a controlled study. The best things is to avoid all medications. If your doctor suggests one, ask about it's known safety and if there is a safer option.
