  • 1. Sertraline and PregnancyDepending on whats known about Sertraline and pregnancy, takingmedication during pregnancy may potentially harm the developingfetus. U.S. Fda (FDA) classifies sertraline just like a pregnancycategory C drug.

Pregnancy Category C describesmedicines which have not been studied in pregnant humans but doappear to harm the fetus in animal studies. Also, medicines whichhave not been studied in females that are pregnant or animalsautomatically get a pregnancy category C rating.Even when a drug comes with the symptoms of negative affect in animalfetuses, you need to keep in mind that animals dont invariably reactto medicines very much the same that humans do. Therefore, aphysician can invariably suggest a pregnancy category C medicine witha mother when they believe the benefits towards the woman outweighthe possible risks to the developing fetus.Sertraline and Pregnancy: ThirdTrimester Concerns
