Fenofibric acid Pregnancy and Breastfeeding Warnings
Fenofibric acid Pregnancy Warnings
Fenofibric acid has been assigned to pregnancy category C by the FDA. Animal studies at slightly elevated human doses showed no adverse developmental findings based on body surface area comparisons. At higher multiples of human doses, evidence of maternal toxicity was observed. In a fertility study done on both male and female rats at high doses (10 times the Maximum Recommended Human Dose (MRHD) there was no adverse effect on fertility. There are no controlled data in human pregnancy. Fenofibric acid should only be given during pregnancy when benefit outweighs risk.

The manufacturer recommends that fenofibric acid should not be used in nursing mothers. A decision should be made to discontinue nursing or discontinue the drug.
