Is anyone taking or have taken labetalol for blood pressure this pregnancy or past pregnancies? Did it help? Have you heard things about side effects? Both my doctor and pharmacist said it’s safe to take while pregnant but of course I’m still worried. I have to go on a low sodium diet and monitor my blood pressure every day with an at home gauge and write it in a log. Anyone else experience this? She told me if it got over 160 I need to go to the ER and she kind of freaked me out. I had preeclampsia with my daughter so I’m assuming that’s why I’m being monitored so closely. I’m 5w2d.
