Use Of Medication During Pregnancy

It is important to know that pregnancy itself affects your medication effectiveness. When you are pregnant, your blood volume increases, and your heart and kidneys both work harder. This means that medications have the potential to pass through your body quicker than usual. This may mean that you have to take more medicine or take it differently.
In most cases there are different types of medications to address a particularly problem. Your health care provider may switch the type of medication you are on to make sure your medical needs are taken care of while lessening any risk to your developing baby.
