Ask your doctor, my doctor prescribed methyldopa for my high blood pressure, but I am breastfeeding, not pregnant. If you have high blood pressure, your doctor will know whats best for you and your baby.

If you are pregnant and have pre-existing hypertension, it is important for it to be well controlled.

In some women hypertension is brought on by the pregnancy, this usually does not develop before the 20th week.

Occasionally, other abnormalities develop, for example the appearance of protein in the urine and abnormalities of blood clotting. This is called pre-eclampsia and it requires regular checks and sometimes admission so that a closer eye can be kept and other treatment given if needed.

Your doctor will ensure that you are regularly monitored so that any potential complications are avoided.Do not worry though in the vast majority of cases that are well looked after there are no adverse consequences.

AnswerThis is from a published medical paper =) Hope it helps!

Pharmacologic therapy could benefit mother and baby when diastolic pressure exceeds 110mmHg. Preeclampsia must be followed closely. Methyldopa (eg, Aldomet) and hydralazine (eg, Apresoline) are still the drugs of choice during pregnancy, although the safety and efficacy of calcium channel blockers and beta-blockers appear well established.
