Drugs Contraindicated During Pregnancy

A typical pregnancy lasts between 38 and 40 weeks. The first, second, and third trimesters are the three periods of this era. To have a healthy pregnancy, one should adhere to fundamental principles such as eating nutritious meals, exercising regularly, and refraining from smoking and drinking. There are other medicines that are prohibited throughout each trimester in addition to these reasons. Narcotic substances such as cocaine, methamphetamine, caffeine, and alcohol are among the first drugs to be avoided. The use of these medicines may result in an unplanned pregnancy. Barbiturates are used often during pregnancy and cause neonatal dependency. Similarly, carbamazepines produce abnormalities in the neutral tube.
