Are Charcoal Tablets Safe

I am 7 weeks pregnant and suffered from constipation and bloating before I was pregnant. To eliviate some of the bloating I used to take charcoal tablets from a herbal shop. Does anyone know if these are safe to take during pregnancy? I have looked on both the label and the manufacturers web site but there is no information about taking these during pregnancy.

When in doubt, ALWAYS call your doctor. Don't rely on what other people say on this site to determine whether or not you take any medication or herbal supplement, it's just too risky. Although most people on here are well intentioned, some might be giving you more of a opinion than a proven fact. Take care. :o)

I have tried asking the doctor who just shrugged her shoulders and told me she didnt know and to ask the at the shop that i purchased them from

To be on the safe side, I would avoid them. Try asking your doctor she recommends.
