That is pretty annoying that they told you to take it! When I was pregnant the first time, I used a topical ointment for a rash I had on my had. I called my OB and asked if it was safe, she said yes no problem. A couple weeks later, I was looking at drug book we had at work that listed all medications, their side affects, and how safe they were for pregnancy. This ointment said DO NOT USE in pregnancy. I was so mad.

It is sad that people depend so much on doctors to tell them what is right, and assume they know, when in all reality, they don't always know.
