  • Oh yes. It's perfectly fine for most women. You should ask your doctor just to make sure, if you're having any issues whatsoever they might tell you to stay way from it.

    But I have to take it every night because I have horrible insomnia issues. I only take one 25mg capsule, though. It knocks me right out =]

  • I took it with my first pregnancy and the doc said it was fine. With my second pregnancy it was on the list of meds to stay away from. Ask your doc to be safe.

  • Dont take my word for it (only a pharmacist or accredited website) but I believe its okay only after the first trimester.
