Is tramadol okay to take when you are pregnant?

Hi Anonymous,

Tramadol has been labeled as a Category C drug during pregnancy. This means that animal studies have revealed evidence of embryotoxicity and fetotoxicity. There are no controlled data in human pregnancy. Tramadol should only be given during pregnancy when benefit outweighs risk.

Please consult with your doctor prior to taking it.

Have a safe pregnancy,
