Thioamides in pregnancy


Propylthiouracil is a pro. It always comes first (used in first trimester of pregnancy).
Methimazole causes Malformations in the embryo (teratogenic).

There are two M's in MethiMazole. This drug is used in second (and third trimester of pregnancy).
Propylthiouracil piles up, causing liver toxicity, thus limiting its use.

Hope it helps
