Drug use during pregnancy in Hungary.

Research output: Contribution to journalArticle

Abstract

The data-set of the Hungarian Case-Control Surveillance of Congenital Abnormalities, 1980-1985, demonstrates the occurrence and distribution of drug intakes during pregnancy in the so-called negative control pregnant women delivering unmalformed babies. Of 13.882, only 1260 (9.1%) did not mention drug intakes during pregnancy studied. When vitamins, iron and calcium supplements are excluded, this proportion increases to 29.1%. The most frequently used categories of drugs were sex hormones (41.8%) mainly as hormonal support therapy sedatives, hypnotics and other drugs acting on the central nervous system (38.8%), and drugs acting on the cardiovascular system (33.9%).
