2 questions Can I get pregnant while on these meds? TTC after VR
An_256716 posted:
I am taking 400 mg of Spironolactone for acne and 10 mg of Klonopin once a day for anxiety. Can I take these drugs until I become pregnant? Or do I have to stop now?

My husband had a VR iin August 2013. I have one blocked tube so my doctor wants me to take clomid.

I think you should discontinue taking these meds but its better to discuss with your doctor.
atti_editor responded:

I agree with Maria that discussing with your doctor how the medications you are taking may affect your pregnancy is a good idea. Our Drugs & Medications Center has this information on Klonopin and this on Spironolactone , saying that you should immediately talk to your doctor about the benefits and risks of using the medications during pregnancy -- and taking them only when clearly necessary.

Best wishes,
