I'm now 32 weeks and have just been given ranitidine from my gp for dire reflux. Any one else taking this? I have this irrational fear that I might kill the baby by taking it, feel a bit selfish taking drugs during pregnancy! Please someone tell me I am a paranoid idiot.
I've been taking it daily throughout my entire pregnancy, as I was already taking it beforehand for a pre-existing acid reflux condition. It's absolutely fine to take during pregnancy, you have nothing to worry about.
I haven't taken it/heard of it etc, but my general opinion is that taking medicine to keep you healthy is not selfish, as you being healthy means that you are in a better position to keep you baby healthy. The GP should have discussed any risks with you before prescribing, so if they haven't said anything, then get yourself better
