Hi.Welcome to just answer.I am caring doc.I can help you today.
Yes there is no harm in getting pregnant while on this drug. There is no risk of increased fetal birth defects or proven risk of misscarriage.
If you do become pregnant on this drug,don't stop using it and continue taking it,just call your doctor and discuss about further management options.Because stopping the drug can have worse outcomes.
I hope it helps.
