Full Prescribing Info
Use In Pregnancy & Lactation
Pregnancy: There are no adequate and well-controlled studies in pregnant women. The drug should be used during the first two trimesters of pregnancy only if the potential benefit justifies the potential risk to the foetus. As with other drugs known to inhibit prostaglandin synthesis, use of etoricoxib should be avoided in late pregnancy because it may cause premature closure of the ducts arteriosus.
Nursing Mothers: A decision should be made whether to discontinue nursing or to discontinue the drug, taking into account the importance of the drug to the mother.
