Zomig and Pregnancy and Nursing


Taking Zomig During Pregnancy — Pregnancy Category C

There are no adequate studies on the effects of using Zomig during pregnancy. In animals, pregnant animals treated with Zomig had some babies with problems. That’s why you should only use Zomig 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 Zomig. You can also check to see if there is an Zomig 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.


Zomig While Breast Feeding

Zomig should be used with caution in women who are breastfeeding. Many drugs, including Zomig, may cross over from a woman’s body into her breast milk. It is not yet known whether or not Zomig is safe for women to use during breastfeeding therefore it is best to consult with your doctor if you are considering using Zomig while nursing.
