Beclomethasone nasal Pregnancy Warnings

Beclomethasone nasal has been assigned to pregnancy category C by the FDA. Beclomethasone administered subcutaneously (not available in the US) has been shown to be teratogenic in animals when given at doses 10 times the doses administered to humans. Teratogenic effects in animals were not seen when beclomethasone was administered at high doses by inhalation or orally. There are no reports of adverse pregnancy outcomes in patients receiving beclomethasone during pregnancy. There are no controlled data in human pregnancy. Beclomethasone is only recommended for use during pregnancy when there are no alternatives and benefit outweighs the risk.

Beclomethasone nasal Breastfeeding Warnings

There are no data on the excretion of beclomethasone into human milk. However, considering the low systemic absorption of the drug by the mother and rapid metabolism, excretion into milk is unlikely. The manufacturer recommends that caution be used when administering beclomethasone nasal to nursing women.
