The U.S. Food and Drug Administration (FDA) considers ceftriaxone a pregnancy Category B medicine, which means that it has not been studied in pregnant women. However, when studied in pregnant animals, ceftriaxone showed no negative effects on unborn babies.
A pregnancy Category B medicine may be given to a pregnant woman if the healthcare provider believes that the benefits to the pregnant woman outweigh any possible risks to the unborn child.
