Is Ketomed And Zoloral Safe For Pregnant Women?
My doctor is 30 weeks pregnant … is it safe if I apply ketomed and zoloral cream to the skin? But I was given a prescription from a skin specialist but when I read in the brochure there were side effects for pregnant women so I was a little worried.
Hello Wike, thank you for asking at HealthReplies.com.
Both of the drugs you mentioned contain the active ingredient ketoconazole which according to the food and drug administration agency belongs to category C for use in pregnant women, which means there is still a lack of data to ensure its safety to be used during pregnancy, but also does not rule out the potential for the benefit greater than the risk caused. Ketoconazole administration is not recommended for pregnant women unless there are certain conditions that require the use of the drug which is adjusted to the condition and results of further clinical examination.
Therefore, it is better for you to consult this matter with a dermatologist to get a more complete examination and treatment.
So much information from me, hopefully it can help
