Hi, my wife is in third trimester and has been experiencing heartburn almost every night. Her gynecologist told her about Zantac. Is this drug safe during pregnancy? Does it negatively affect a developing unborn child? If it is not safe, which drugs she has to take as an alternative to it, to occupy terrible heartburns?

For pregnant women Zantac (ranitidine) is considered safe as it belongs to a class B drug. There are no trials conducted in pregnant women but in animal studies have not shown adverse effects on offspring.
So consult your doctor about dosage of Zantac who will consider both the benefits and risks of taking Zantac during pregnancy.
