I believe I am pregnant it is still too early for a pregnancy test.
Patient :I believe I am pregnant it is still too early for a pregnancy test, however I take alprazolam for my anxiety is this still safe or is their an alternative medication? I have an appointment next Thursday with my OB. Thank you
Thanks for the query to ATD for an opinion,
If you believe that you are pregnant, then rather than taking a urine pregnancy test which is valid only after 8 days post missed menses, you may undertake a serum beta hcg test now. If teh hcg lvels are more than 3mIU then you are surely pregnant. If so, then you should stop alprazolam as it is a category c drug and not safe in pregnancy.
I hope i have answered your query,
Wishing you good health,
