    Hello! I have a question about prescription medication and getting pregnant and whether they are safe. My ObGYN says to change prior to getting pregnant but my regular family physicians says it is okay to wait until after you are pregnant. I take Lisinopril 10mg and also Provastatin 20mg (not sure if I spelled those correctly). Should I change prior to getting pregnant or is it safe to wait? Thanks!
