Hi,
Welcome to ehealthforum,
The studies in animals done for this medication have revealed adverse effects on the fetus (teratogenic or embryocidal or other) and there are no controlled studies in women or studies in women and animals are not available. This medication should be given only if the potential benefit justifies the potential risk to the fetus. If you are planning for pregnancy, then discuss your pregnancy plans with her treating doctor to have her started on alternative medications.
Take care.
