ldquo;This study examines medication use among women aged 15 to 49, comparing pregnant women with their nonpregnant contemporaries. A portrait of women who used medication during pregnancy is also presented. Analysis is based on data from the 1994/95 through 2002/03 National Longitudinal Survey of Children and Youth (NLSCY), as well as the 2003 Canadian Community Health Survey (CCHS) and the 1996/97 National Population Health Survey (NPHS).”
