BILLINGS, Mont. (AP) — A Billings man was sentenced to life in prison Friday for kidnapping and killing an Illinois man who was shot in the head and beaten with a shovel until it broke, his body later stashed in a culvert along a rural road.
A new study suggests that high blood pressure during early pregnancy is what raises the risk of major birth defects _ not the medicines used to control the condition, as previously thought.
He said ACE inhibitors are not commonly prescribed to pregnant women because of past concerns, and that the main worry has been getting them off the drugs as soon as they are pregnant.
"What this study does is reassure us women can stay on the drug until they're pregnant and then stop," he said. "You never know how long someone is going to take to get pregnant and if they come off a blood pressure drug for too long, it could be bad for them."
