Hello! My name is Dr.Ehtisham. Welcome to JustAnswer. I'm reviewing your question now, and will post back with your reply momentarily.

None of these medicines is absolutely safe in pregnancy

Rizatriptan is category C drug and has shown risk to fetus in animal studies but the human studies are very few or unavailable

Similarly Naxdom is a combination of Naproxen and Domperidone and there has been risk of still birth and premature closure of foraman ovale

So these should only be used if there is no alternative available

Please do let me know if you have any other question

Are there any migraine medicines safe for use during pregnancy?

Usually Paracetamol is the safest among all

As I said the others can be given but they are not absolutely safe
