Acebutelol

Dr. Amy,

I just had a miscarriage 2 weeks ago, and I have borderline high blood pressure. I would like to concieve again but I have been put on acebutelol to control my blood pressure. Will this have any effect on the fetus?

Sherry

Dear Sherry,

Uncontrolled high blood pressure can cause problems in pregnancy so it is important to keep your blood pressure under control. Acebutelol is considered safe in pregnancy. Talk with your gynecologist, though, to be sure that this is the best medicine for you during a pregnancy.

Sincerely,
Amy
