Hi Dr. Braverman,


I was placed on Methyldopa through all of my pregnancies for my high blood pressure. I have been on it now for 3 years. All of my 6 pregnancies in this time have ended as losses. Are there any long term side effects of this medication? I don't think that they necessarily played a role in my losses but I wonder if I should now be looking at going off this medication since I am not now pregnant?


BTW, I am currently in the processing of registering with you.

YOu can stay on the methyldopa that is not the issue. whatever is causing you to need the medicaiton is most likely the issue.
