List of OB Drugs

Updated on August 12, 2011

OB Drug Guide

When studying for my CNA and while in nursing school, learning the OB drugs was something I won't forget.

There are many important drugs that are used during pregnancy and while breastfeeding, and it is important to know them if you're in the medical field. Because a pregnancy is a very fickle time in a woman's life, it's important that the medications are carefully considered, as a part of both the woman and the fetus' health.

If you're not in school for a medical profession, but you're just interested in what medications- prescription or over-the-counter- that you can take while pregnant, the following list will help you as well. If you're pregnant or trying to become pregnant, it's always a good idea to contact your OB/GYN for answers for specific questions, especially in regards to you and your health.

Below, you'll find lists of the antepartum, intrapartum, newborn, and postpartum OB drugs. I've included the generic name, trade name, and the classification of the drug.
