Pregnancy: Clinical experience of the intravenous administration of paracetamol is limited. However, epidemiological data from the use of oral therapeutic doses of paracetamol indicate no undesirable effects in pregnancy or on the health of the foetus / newborn infant.
No reproductive studies with the intravenous form of paracetamol have been performed in animals. However, studies with the oral route did not show any malformation or foetotoxic effects.
Nevertheless, Paracetamol B. Braun should only be used during pregnancy after a careful benefit-risk assessment. In this case, the recommended posology and duration must be strictly observed.
Lactation: After oral administration, paracetamol is excreted into breast milk in small quantities. No undesirable effects on nursing infants have been reported. Consequently, Paracetamol B. Braun may be used in breast-feeding women.
