Spinosad has been assigned to pregnancy category B by the FDA. Animal studies have failed to reveal evidence of teratogenicity. There are no controlled data in human pregnancy. Spinosad is only recommended for use during pregnancy when benefit outweighs risk.

Spinosad topical Breastfeeding Warnings

Spinosad is not systemically absorbed; and therefore, will not be present in human milk. However, the topical suspension contains benzyl alcohol, which may be systemically absorbed through the skin, and the amount of benzyl alcohol excreted in human milk with use of spinosad topical suspension is unknown. The manufacturer recommends that caution should be used when spinosad topical suspension is administered to a lactating woman. A lactating woman may choose to pump and discard breast milk for 8 hours (5 half-lives of benzyl alcohol) after use to avoid infant ingestion of benzyl alcohol.
