When a woman finds out she's pregnant, she'll do just about anything to make sure her baby is safe. This often includes eating right, avoiding smoking and not taking any unnecessary medications. But what constitutes a necessary medication? This depends on the woman and the severity of the underlying medical problem for which the medication is being taken for.
