I was thinking the same thing. I can't remember the name of the new med I should be getting the prescription tomorrow. My question and concern is about the time I have been taking Norvasc and if it has been harming my baby. If anyone has been in a similar situtaion. I appreciate your help. Thank you very much.

Well, you are 18 weeks, so the time of primary organ generation has past. If your OB did not change it at the beginning of your pregnancy, why change it now? Is this a new doctor? Is your BP controlled and what is the new medication?

Ol i am 18 weeks pregnant and have had high blood pressure since before my pregnancy. I have seen a few doctors, including a specialist for high blood pressure during pregnancy and have kept me on my regular meds which is Norvasc. A doctor i had seen today advised me to stop taking it amd to start a new med. Any advice on taking Norvasc dueing pregnancy?

What sort of advice? This is probably something you need to discuss with your doctor, but I can try to offer information.
