I am 9 weeks pregnant and very sick. I went to hospital 2x due to being so dehydrated. My doctor prescribed Reglan and Protonix. He says they are both safe during pregnancy. I am very concerned. Do you have any research and answers about these drugs and pregnancy?
Both of these drugs Reglan(metoclopramide) and Protonix(pantoprazole) have been studied quite extensively in pregnancy and have been found to be safe to use. In every pregnancy there is always a risk for having a baby with a major malformation(1-3%) and neither of these drugs increased that risk.
