Abstract

A computerized database for documenting drug use in pregnancy was set up on a personal computer. Summaries of the information available from the literature on more than 700 drugs taken during pregnancy have already been entered and are currently in use. This reliable, cheap, handy, and personal system (the first available on the topic) may be a potentially useful instrument not only for drug consultation services, but for individual physicians, too.
