Full Prescribing Info
Use In Pregnancy & Lactation
There are no controlled studies available on the use of Saizen in animals or in pregnant women. Saizen must not be administered during pregnancy (see Precautions), as it is not yet known what the effect of an increase in the concentration of growth hormone on specific stages of embryogenesis or fetal growth may be.
Consequently, pregnancy must be excluded throughout the whole period of the treatment with Saizen and the patients must be informed of the possible non-hormonal methods of contraception. In the event of a pregnancy occurring, the treatment must be stopped. If the treatment with Saizen is continued in girls after the 1st menstruation, a non-hormonal method of contraception must be envisaged.
There is no indication that hGH passes into the mother's milk. It is not known if exogenous peptide hormones are excreted into breast milk but absorption of intact protein from the gastrointestinal tract of the infant is unlikely. However, as a precaution, weaning is indicated before Saizen is administered.
For Saizen 8 mg: It is not known if exogenous peptide hormones are excreted into breast milk but absorption of intact protein from the gastrointestinal tract of the infant is unlikely.
