Repaglinide Pregnancy and Breastfeeding Warnings

Repaglinide is also known as: Prandin

Repaglinide Pregnancy Warnings

Repaglinide has been assigned to pregnancy category C by the FDA. Animal studies have failed to reveal evidence of teratogenicity. There are no controlled data in human pregnancy. However, because elevated blood glucose levels during pregnancy may be associated with a higher incidence of congenital abnormalities, many experts recommend that insulin be used during pregnancy to maintain blood glucose levels as close to normal as possible. Repaglinide is only recommended for use during pregnancy when benefit outweighs risk.

Repaglinide Breastfeeding Warnings

There are no data on the excretion of repaglinide into human milk. The manufacturer recommends that due to the potential for serious adverse reactions in nursing infants, a decision should be made to discontinue nursing or discontinue the drug, taking onto account the importance of the drug to the mother.
