Full Prescribing Info
Use In Pregnancy & Lactation
Use in Pregnancy & Lactation: Sitagliptin was not teratogenic in rats at oral dose up to 250 mg/kg or in rabbits given up to 125 mg/kg during organogenesis (up to 32 and 22 times, respectively, the human exposure based on the recommended daily adult human dose of 100 mg/day). In rats, a slight increase in the incidence of fetal rib malformations (absent, hypoplastic and wavy ribs) was observed at oral doses of 1000 mg/kg/da (approximately 100 times the human exposure based on the recommended daily adult human dose of 100 mg/day). Slight decreases in mean preweaning body weights of both sexes and postweaning body weight gains of males were observed in the offspring of rats given oral dose of 1000 mg/kg/day. However, animal reproduction studies are not always predictive of the human response.
There are no adequate and well-controlled studies in pregnant women; therefore the safety of Sitagliptin in pregnant women is not known.
Sitagliptin like other oral antihyperglycemic agents, is not recommended for use in pregnancy.
Sitagliptin is secreted in the milk of lactating rats, it is not known whether sitagliptin is secreted in human milk, Therefore, Sitaglipin should not be used by a woman who is nursing.
