Pregnancy categories of drugs

  1. 1. PREGNANCY CATEGORIES OF DRUGS By Jorge De Avila 2013
  2. 2. PREGNANCY CATEGORIES OF DRUGS • Pregnancy Category A : • Controlled studies in pregnant women fail to detect risk to the fetus in the first trimester and no evidence of risk in later trimesters. The possibility of harm to the fetus appears remote by using the drugs of pregnancy category A.
  3. 3. PREGNANCY CATEGORIES OF DRUGS • Pregnancy Category B : • Presumed safety on the basis of animal studies, with no controlled study in pregnant women, or animal studies have shown an adverse effect which was not confirmed in controlled studies in women in the first trimester and there is no evidence of risk to the fetus in later trimesters.
  4. 4. PREGNANCY CATEGORIES OF DRUGS • Pregnancy Category C : • Studies in women and animals are not available or studies in animals have shown adverse effects on the fetus and there is no controlled study in women. Drugs should be given in pregnancy only if the potential benefits justify the potential risk to the fetus.
  5. 5. PREGNANCY CATEGORIES OF DRUGS • Pregnancy Category D : • There is positive evidence of risk to the human fetus (unsafe), however in a life- threatening illness the potential risk may be justified if there are no other alternatives.
  6. 6. PREGNANCY CATEGORIES OF DRUGS • Pregnancy Category X : • Highly unsafe: risk of use outweighs any potential benefit. Drugs in this category are contraindicated in pregnant women or in a woman who may become pregnant. • http://depts.washington.edu/druginfo/Formulary/Pregnancy.pd f
