No evidence of drug related external, visceral or skeletal fetal abnormalitles were observed. No drug related external, visceral or skeletal abnormalities were observed in fetuses of pregnant rabbits at doses more than 225 times the usual maximum recommended human dose.
There are no adequate and well controlled studies which establish the safety of prazosin in pregnant women. Prazosin should be used during pregnancy only if the potential benefit justifies the potential risk to the mother and fetus.
Lactation: Prazosin has been shown to be excreted in small amounts in human milk. Caution should be exercised when prazosin is administered to a nursing woman.
