I'm at 29 weeks and have had some serious heartburn. My OB said to take one Prilosec per day. I've taken it for the past two days, and it's working great already, but I've read different things about taking it during pregnancy.
The sources I've read say there haven't been tests done on humans but that in animals it increases the chance of miscarriage. But since I'm now past the risk of miscarriage I don't know if it increases chances of complications or stillbirth.
I looked up some more things in forums online, and I saw a few women who said they took it, even throughout most of their pregnancies, and had no problems.
So I guess my questions are:
1. Have you taken Prilosec during pregnancy with no problems?
2. Have you or do you know of anyone who has had pregnancy complications related to taking Prilosec?
