It is always the best to discuss this with your gynaecologist or Health Care Professional that will take care of you during your pregnancy. In general one must always try to take only essential medication during pregnancy. The Eltroxin if used for hypothyroidism will be essential as you need normal functioning of your thyroid - and if this is only for replacement therapy it is generally not a problem - you must however have your thyroid functions checked frequently. Iron supplementation is also necessary if you are iron depleted. For the insulin resistance medication your gynaecologist must decide if you are taking it for PCOS if he/she wants you to continue with it.
