Full Prescribing Info
Use In Pregnancy & Lactation
Fertility: Studies have not been performed to evaluate the effect of intravenous administration of fluorescein on fertility.
Pregnancy: There are insufficient data available concerning the use of Fluorescite Injection 10% during pregnancy. Studies in animals with fluorescein do not indicate harmful effects with respect to reproductive toxicity following systemic administration.
Breast-feeding:
Fluorescein sodium is excreted in human milk following systemic administration for up to 7 days. A risk to the suckling child cannot be excluded. Following fluorescein angiography, breast-feeding should therefore be discontinued for at least 7 days and the milk should be pumped off and discarded during this period.
