Hello Dr. Braverman. I have read countless message boards on using Neupogen to help with pregnancy. I also read a lot of message boards where they link a cleft lip/palate to the use of Neupogen on your first trimester.
I know you've treated countless of patients with neupogen, were any of those patients babies, born with a cleft lip/palate?
I want to schedule an appointment since i have had 4 failed IVF's with Donor eggs... But I am really scared to go on Neupogen. I was also wondering if doubling up on Folic acid while on neupogen will help minimize the defect....
Thank You

Dr. Braverman

Any reports you have read about Neupogen and cleft palate are not true, I assume these are rumors (as many are ) started by someone on a message board. Always request the literature people are quoting and read it for your self(or send it to me) if you want to be sure what you hear is correct.
