Abstract

Many medical conditions during pregnancy are best treated initially with nonpharmacologic remedies. Before a drug is used during pregnancy, the indications should be clear and the risk-benefit ratio should justify its use. Then, the minimum effective dose should be employed. If possible, therapy should be postponed until after the first trimester.
