Pg And Hypertention

Chaney - October 26

I just found out I am 5 weeks pregnant and I had a mc on 9/23. When I went to the OB for my mc they were worried about my blood pressure (170/100) and referred me to my GP. My gp put me on 5 mg of Norvasc and told me that most obs agree it is safe for pregnancy. However, everything I see on the web says that the effects for this durg are unknow. Anyone esle in my situation or know pg women who were treated with hypertention with norvasc? Help I am worried!

I had hypertention in my first pg but only in the third trimester. They put me on Labetelol (sp?) told me it was safe for the baby but that I would have to have a biophysical scan (ultrasound and other tests) once a week until I delivered, I now have a very healthy and active 13 month old boy. I have never heard of norvasc...

I have been on norvasc and when I found out I was pregnant they changed it over to labetolol. I was told Norvasc was safe too (5mg also) but had swelling in my ankles so they switched me to labetolol which is also safe.

Thanks JK, that makes me feel better. Any one else out there know anything about Norvasc?
