Neonates exposed to antipsychotic drugs, during the third trimester of pregnancy are at risk for extrapyramidal and/or withdrawal symptoms following delivery. There have been reports of agitation, hypertonia, hypotonia, tremor, somnolence, respiratory distress and feeding disorder in these neonates. These complications have varied in severity; while in some cases symptoms have been self-limited, in other cases neonates have required intensive care unit support and prolonged hospitalization.
Chlorpromazine Hydrochloride should be used during pregnancy only if the potential benefit justifies the potential risk to the fetus.
Usage in Pregnancy
Safety for the use of Chlorpromazine during pregnancy has not been established. Therefore, it is not recommended that the drug be given to pregnant patients except when, in the judgment of the physician, it is essential. The potential benefits should clearly outweigh possible hazards. There are reported instances of prolonged jaundice, extrapyramidal signs, hyperreflexia or hyporeflexia in newborn infants whose mothers received phenothiazines.
Reproductive studies in rodents have demonstrated potential for embryotoxicity, increased neonatal mortality and nursing transfer of the drug. Tests in the offspring of the drug-treated rodents demonstrate decreased performance. The possibility of permanent neurological damage cannot be excluded.
How long ago was this? What I mean is, was this just within the last few years or is your child older like pre-teen or older? I'm not a doctor or a medical professional, but I've had 3 children and I have had severe nausea with one and that was over 25 years ago and even then they would only put me in the hospital and treat me with fluids and I think the drug they gave me was Phenargan (I'm not sure I spelled that right), but I do know what Thorazine is, I have a friend who takes it for a severe mental illness and I had no idea that they used that to treat nausea in pregnant woman knowing the side effects.
