Pharmacotherapy in pregnancy is often problematic, since both the mother-to-be and her doctor are often concerned about possible risks for the unborn child. On the other hand, we now have sufficient knowledge of a whole range of medications, to enable the recommendation of safe drug treatment in almost any clinical situation. The family doctor, too, is often consulted by pregnant women requiring treatment for internistic problems. These include such pregnancy-unrelated problems as essential hypertension or bronchial asthma, as well as pregnancy-related disorders such as urinary tract infection or gastrointestinal problems.
