Full Prescribing Info
Use In Pregnancy & Lactation
Fertility: Animal reproduction studies have revealed no evidence of impaired fertility or harm to the fetus due to sulbactam and ampicillin.
Use During Pregnancy: Sulbactam and ampicillin cross the placental barrier. Safety for use during pregnancy has not been established. Therefore, sulbactam sodium/ampicillin sodium should be used during pregnancy only if the potential benefits outweigh the potential risk.
Use During Lactation: Low concentrations of sulbactam (~0.13 up to 2.8 mg/L) and ampicillin (~0.11 up to 3 mg/L) are excreted in the milk. The use of sulbactam sodium/ampicillin sodium by a nursing mother may lead to adverse effects such as diarrhea in the child. Sulbactam sodium/ampicillin sodium can be used during lactation if the potential benefits outweigh the potential risks.
