Taking xanax during pregnancy
what can happen if you are taking xanex during pregnancy?
Xanax is classified as a class D drug which means, in general, it should be avoided in pregnancy. The concern is that there has been a slight increase in birth defects in pregnant women who have taken this medication especially in the early part of pregnancy.
