Treximet and Pregnancy and Nursing

Taking Treximet During Pregnancy; Pregnancy Category C

There are no adequate studies on the effects of Treximet in pregnant women.

In animals, pregnant animals treated with Treximet had some babies with problems. That’s why you should only use Treximet 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 Treximet.

To monitor outcomes of pregnant women exposed to Treximet, GlaxoSmithKline maintains a Treximet Pregnancy Registry. Doctors are encouraged to register patients as soon as possible after they become pregnant and (if possible) before the outcome of the pregnancy is known by calling (800) 336-2176.

Taking Treximet While Breast Feeding

Both of the active ingredients in Treximet, sumatriptan and naproxen sodium, are carried in human breast milk.

Because of the possible side effects of these drugs on unborn children, you should not use Treximet if you are nursing.
