Hello. Lyrica is considered to be a category C drug by the FDA. It is not known if the drug will harm the fetus. The same for breast feeding. Not known if the drug is passed on through the mothers milk. It is advised to not start lycria if pregnant or to stop taking it if pregnant without first talking with your doctor. Regards, pledge

Animal studies have revealed increased incidences of fetal structural abnormalities and other manifestations of developmental toxicity including lethality, growth retardation, and both nervous and reproduction system functional impairment. Animal studies have reported that pregabalin crosses the placenta and have shown an increased risk in male-mediated teratogenicity. There are no controlled data in human pregnancy
