Aminosalicylic acid Pregnancy Warnings

Aminosalicylic acid has been assigned to pregnancy category C by the FDA. There are no controlled data in human pregnancy. Aminosalicylic acid is only recommended during pregnancy when there are no alternatives and benefit outweighs risk.

The U.S. Public Health Service, Centers for Disease Control, and the Infectious Diseases Society of America in their recommendations and reports on the treatment of tuberculosis advise that aminosalicylic acid has been used safely in pregnancy and that it should be used only if there are no alternatives for a pregnant woman who has mutidrug-resistant tuberculosis.
