Full Prescribing Info
Use In Pregnancy & Lactation
Use in Pregnancy: Pregnancy Category C: There are no adequate and well-controlled studies in pregnant women. Therefore, quetiapine should only be used during pregnancy if the potential benefit justifies the potential risk to the fetus.
Neonates exposed to antipsychotic drugs during the third trimester of pregnancy are at risk for extrapyramidal and/or withdrawal symptoms after delivery. There have been reports of agitation, hypertonia, hypotonia, tremor, somnolence, respiratory distress, and feeding disorder in these neonates. These complications have varied in severity; while in some cases symptoms have been self-limited, in other cases neonates have required intensive care unit support and prolonged hospitalization.
Quetiapine should only be used during pregnancy if the potential benefit justifies the potential risk to the fetus.
Labor and delivery/Use in Lactation: The effect of quetiapine on labor and delivery is unknown. Quetiapine is excreted into human milk and breastfeeding is not recommended during quetiapine therapy.
