Dear Vana

Most package leaflets of medication will suggest that the safety of these drugs has not been confirmed in pregnancy and therefore should be avoided. However under certain circumstances drugs such as Meticorten is used in pregnancy. The normal indication for the use Meticorten is in patients with recurrent early pregnancy loses or in patients with recurrent third IVF cycles.
