Pred Forte Drops safe to use during pregnancy??

Postby Junopops » Wed 11 Oct 2017 8:22 am

Does anyone know if its safe to use Pred Forte eyedrops during pregnancy?
I read online that they should only be used if the benefit outweighs the risk. I'm currently on them once a day to both eyes.
I know I should ask my consultant but I just thought I would see if anyone here had any other input.

Thanks

I was on them whilst pregnant, tbh most drops are said to be unsafe only because no clinical trial has been done on pregnant people to date so they have to advise against just because that is how these things work.

I now have a very healthy rarely poorly will be 5 in January will wean naturally when they are ready from the breast mini space cadet - feel free to ping me a private message if you wsh x
