Group B drugs are drugs that have been shown to harm the fetus in animal experiments. However, despite the fact that there is no controlled study in women, it is accepted that it does not harm the baby.
Drugs in group C are drugs that have been found to cause some damage to the fetus in animal experiments, or a group of drugs that have not had animal experiments. In humans, no side effects have been shown.
Use of group C drugs in pregnancy can only be used if the benefit is greater than the harm. D group drugs are likely to harm pregnancy. Drugs in this group can only be used if there are no less harmful drugs and there is a life-threatening condition for the mother.
X group of drugs in the womb of the fetus certainly cause some disability drugs. They are forbidden to use in pregnancy and in case of pregnancy.
