    Which form of iron? Iron dextran is labeled pregnancy class C. Iron sucrose is labeled pregnancy class B. They are both prescription only.

    NSAIDS are pregnancy category C for the first two trimesters and pregnancy category D for the third trimester, one example of a drug that changes pregnancy categories.

    This is what my book says about ferrous sulfate in the precautions section:

    Pregnancy (B) (ferric gluconate complex), (C) (iron dextran, oral products)
