Full Prescribing Info
Use In Pregnancy & Lactation
Use in pregnancy: Noradrenaline may impair placental perfusion and induce fetal bradycardia. It may also exert a contractile effect on the pregnant uterus and lead to fetal asphyxia in late pregnancy. These possible risks to the fetus should therefore be weighed against the potential benefit to the mother.
Use in lactation: No information is available on the use of noradrenaline in lactation.
