Full Prescribing Info
Use In Pregnancy & Lactation
Use in pregnancy & lactation: As with most drugs, Betaloc ZOK should not be given during pregnancy and lactation unless its use is considered essential. As with all antihypertensive agents, β-blockers may cause side effects eg, bradycardia, in the foetus and in the newborn and breastfed infant.
The amount of metoprolol ingested via breast milk, however, seems to be negligible as regards to the β-blocking effect in the infant if the mother is treated with metoprolol in doses within the normal therapeutic range.
