pms-Quetiapine Use In Pregnancy & Lactation





Full Prescribing Info
Use In Pregnancy & Lactation
Pregnant Women: Patients should be advised to notify their physician if they become pregnant or intend to become pregnant during treatment with quetiapine. The safety and efficacy of quetiapine during human pregnancy have not been established. Following some pregnancies in which quetiapine was used, neonatal withdrawal symptoms have been reported. Therefore, quetiapine should only be used during pregnancy if the expected benefits justify the potential risks.
Nursing Women: There have been published reports of quetiapine excretion into human breast milk, however the degree of excretion was not consistent. Women who are breast-feeding should therefore be advised to avoid breast-feeding while taking quetiapine.
