Study says increasing number of women take medications during pregnancy

The Consumer Justice Foundation recently announced that a new study found that the number of women taking both prescription and over-the-counter medications while pregnant continues to increase.

The study, published in the American Journal of Obstetrics and Gynecology, combined information from 30,000 women in interview-based studies to come to their conclusions.  Researchers from Harvard, Boston University, the U.S. Center for Disease Control and Prevention, and the National Center on Birth Defects and Developmental Disabilities were involved in the study.

80 percent of the women in the study said they had taken either an over-the-counter or prescription medication while pregnant.  Furthermore, 50 percent of women said they had taken one or more medications during the first trimester of their pregnancy.

Researchers were surprised by their findings because several other recent studies have shown that taking medications like Depakote during a pregnancy increases the risk of the child having a birth defect.
