Bacampicillin Pregnancy and Breastfeeding Warnings

Bacampicillin is also known as: Spectrobid

Bacampicillin Pregnancy Warnings

Bacampicillin has been assigned to pregnancy category B by the FDA. Animal studies failed to reveal evidence of fetal harm. There are no controlled data in human pregnancy. Bacampicillin should only be given during pregnancy when need has been clearly established.

Bacampicillin Breastfeeding Warnings

Bacampicillin is converted in vitro to ampicillin. Ampicillin is excreted into human milk in small amounts. Candidiasis and diarrhea have been reported in an infant exposed to ampicillin via breast milk; however, the cause was uncertain. The American Academy of Pediatrics considers some other penicillins (amoxicillin, ticarcillin) compatible with breast-feeding. The manufacturer recommends caution when administering ampicillin-class antibiotics to nursing women.
