I am currently trying to conceive, I have looked up several medicines to check to see if they are safe if I do become pregnant, all of the ones I looked up say that they are not safe(Levbid, Librax, Bentyl, Donnatal) are there any medicines for spasms in the colon that are safe to take while pregnant? I cannot stop taking my meds(Bentyl, and Donnatal) if I do, I have a bad, long lasting pain in the right of my abdomin. What do I do? We want another baby, but without my meds. I am in so much pain!

Hi PooH,I was in your boat a year ago. I wanted to get pregnant, but worried how I'd live without my Librax (anti-spas). The gyno told me that Librax is Class C, so shouldn't be used during pregnancy. He switched me to Bentyl, which is a Class B drug. Class B drugs can be used during pregnancy. I gave birth 7 weeks ago to a beautiful, healthy baby girl. So, I would look up the donnatol to see what class that is, but I know that Bentyl is safe.Good luck,Stacey

Thank You Stace for your reply. I was wondering too, because Dr. did put me on Bentyl, and I did tell him that I was trying to conceive. But then another Dr. told me, after putting me on Donnatal, that I should not be taking any of the medicines while trying to conceive.

The doctors would prefer that pregnant women take NO drugs, esp. during 1st trimester. However, if medicine is really needed, it must be a Class B drug. Thank heavens for Bentyl. Good luck trying to conceive.Stacey
