Good night, if you already take 1 mg of simvastatin once you are already pregnant, is it dangerous?

1 Answer:

Hello, thank you for the question to HealthReplies.com

Basically simvastatin is a category X drug, which is a drug that has been proven to cause birth defects in babies and the risk of its use far exceeds the benefits that can be obtained from the use of the drug. Medications from category X may not be used by pregnant women under any circumstances. Furthermore, do not ever take drugs that are included hard drugs (drugs with a red circle label) without checking a doctor first.

Since you've already consumed Simvastatin, nothing else can be done. Consumption only once (and in small doses) is unlikely to cause side effects or certain abnormalities in your fetus, but to be sure, you must do an ultrasound examination at the obstetrician. Make sure you do antenatal checks regularly. If you usually do a pregnancy check at the midwife, make sure you do an obstetrician's examination at least twice, once during the first trimester, and again during the third trimester. Also make sure you consume your pregnancy vitamins regularly every day to meet the nutritional needs of you and your baby.

So much information from me, hopefully enough answer
