Use In Pregnancy & Lactation
Pregnancy: Cafergot is contraindicated during pregnancy because ergotamine has oxytocic and vasoconstrictor effects on the placenta and umbilical cord.
Lactation: Ergotamine is excreted in breast milk and may cause symptoms of vomiting, diarrhoea, weak pulse and unstable blood pressure in infants. Thus, Cafergot is contraindicated in nursing mothers.
