Full Prescribing Info
Use In Pregnancy & Lactation
Acarbose should not be administered during pregnancy, as no information is available on its use in pregnant woman. After administration of radio labeled acarbose to lactating rats a small quantity of the radioactivity was found in the milk. There are as yet no corresponding findings in humans. However, as drug-induced effects of acarbose in milk have not been excluded in babies, in principle it is advisable not to prescribe Acarbose during the breast-feeding period.
