Full Prescribing Info
Use In Pregnancy & Lactation
Pregnancy: There are a limited amount of data from the use of erenumab in pregnant women. Animal studies do not indicate direct or indirect harmful effects with respect to reproductive toxicity (see Pharmacology: Toxicology: Preclinical safety data under Actions). As a precautionary measure, it is preferable to avoid the use of Aimovig during pregnancy.
Breast-feeding: It is unknown whether erenumab is excreted in human milk. Human IgGs are known to be excreted in breast milk during the first few days after birth, which is decreasing to low concentrations soon afterwards; consequently, a risk to the breast-fed infant cannot be excluded during this short period. Afterwards, use of Aimovig could be considered during breast-feeding only if clinically needed.
Fertility: Animal studies showed no impact on female and male fertility (see Pharmacology: Toxicology: Preclinical safety data under Actions).
