Your medications need to be discussed with your obstetrician and the doctor who prescibes those nedications to you, not your cousellor. They will be able to guide you in regards to safety for the pregnacy and nursing. If some of the medications need to be changed for safer ones, theu will be able to help you with that. Good luck with your pregnancy.
