Properly assessing the safety of pharmacological therapies for gastrointestinal conditions encountered during pregnancy is a challenge on account of both the often limited controlled data available and the potentially confounding effect of the underlying disorders requiring treatment on fetal outcomes. Here, the available data with regard to gastrointestinal disorders specific to pregnancy, those that may be precipitated or exacerbated by pregnancy and those that may be pre-existing or arise concurrently during pregnancy are reviewed.
