Animal studies of oral administration of doses up to 75 mg/kg/day were given during organogenesis; embryofetal toxicity (lower fetal body weight, delayed ossification) was seen with maternotoxic doses. No treatment related malformations or effects on postnatal development were seen at 50 times the maximum recommended human dose (MRHD). There are no controlled data in human pregnancy. The background birth defect and miscarriage risk for the indicated population is not known. In the US general population, the estimated major birth defect risk is 2 to 4% and the miscarriage risk is 15 to 20%.
