Sleeping tablets during pregnancy.
My partner and I are trying for a baby. I am unemployed and occasionally take 1/2 a Lexomil to help me get off to sleep. Would this be dangerous for the baby?
Taking sleeping tablets is not recommended during pregnancy, or in fact for anyone over long periods of time, as there is risk you may become dependent on them in the same way as alcohol or cigarettes. It is a particularly bad idea in the later stages of pregnancy, as they can create problems during the birth, or respiratory problems if you have been taking a high dosage.
