Alphadopa ( Medicine to Control High BP) In Pregnancy – How Safe?
Posted February 19, 2010on:
Its one of the safest drugs you can take while pregnant. I was on it up until I was 6 months pregnant. It kept my BP down but gave me nasty heart papiltations, and I ended up in the ER. So I got sent to a Cardiologist and he gave me Toprol. But put your mind at ease with the Methyldopa, its totally safe, it has been around for many years, and its primarily perscribed to pregnant woman, it will have no effect on your baby. Good Luck!!
Alpha dopa contains methyl dopa.Methyldopa is a category B medication. It has the longest safety record for treatment of hypertension in pregnancy.So kindly follow the advise of your doctor. Check SafeFetus.com for more info.

HOW? All the scientific research being done on toxemia and preeclampsia these days is focusing on treatment, and none of it is promising. But the research has already been done, many times and many ways in the past 50+ years, and we know that you can PREVENT this from happening to you in the first place, no matter what your personal history may be. The simple answer? GOOD NUTRITION.
