Re: Introducing myself!!!
Congrats. I'd probably call my ob/gyn office to ask about the medicine. Or at least see if the dose is right if it's causing you those issues.
Welcome :)

Re: Introducing myself!!!
Welcome and I hope you have a H&H pregnancy! Those are common side effects when you first start Labetalol, but you can call your OB for reassurance. They should get better. Are you monitoring your BP?

Re: Introducing myself!!!
I see it's been awhile since you posted about your symptoms, but I wanted to let you know that I had the same problems the first week or so on Labetalol and it cleared up after that. I was on a different med with my first pregnancy that I preferred, but the OB's at my new midwife's office are more comfortable with Labetalol. Hope your issues cleared up and the med is keeping everything under control!
