Is Reydin safe to use while pregnant?
My doctor recently changed the ARV I was suing to Reydin. Is it safe to use Reydin while pregnant?
Hi Mavis, how are you doing? Congratulations on the pregnancy.
Reydin is a first line ARV for pregnant woman. It is recommended by UK and WHO guidelines.
Reydin is a combination of 3 medications. It does contain Dolutegravir which is associated with a small increased risk of neural tube defects. A small risk.
In the UK it is recommended that women take a folic acid supplement for the first 12 weeks of pregnancy to reduce this risk. Speaking to the doctor who prescribed the medication cam help explain why your ARV was changed.
