Omed: There is no adequate data on the safety of Omeprazole in pregnant women. Animal studies have revealed no teratogenic effect, but reproduction studies have revealed reduced lifter weights. However, to avoid the risk of developing the undesirable effects, Omeprazole should not be recommended in pregnancy unless its use is essential.
It is not known whether Omeprazole is secreted into human milk. Breast feeding should therefore be discontinued if the use of Omeprazole is considered essential.
