Relpax and Pregnancy and Nursing

Taking Relpax During Pregnancy; Pregnancy Category C

There are no adequate studies on the effects of using Relpax during pregnancy. In animals, pregnant animals treated with Relpax had some babies with problems. That’s why you should only use Relpax during pregnancy if the potential benefit is greater than the potential risk to your unborn child. If you are pregnant, or think you might be pregnant, talk to your doctor about using Relpax. You can also check to see if there is a Relpax pregnancy exposure registry for that medicine. The Food and Drug Administration has a list of pregnancy exposure registries (http://www.fda.gov/womens/registries/default.htm) where pregnant women can find information.

Relpax While Breast Feeding

Relpax is present in human breast milk in breastfeeding women who take Relpax, even 18-24 hours after a dose is taken. Women should use caution if using Relpax while breastfeeding and discuss the use of Relpax with their healthcare provider.
