Amyl nitrite Pregnancy and Breastfeeding Warnings

Amyl nitrite Pregnancy Warnings

Amyl nitrite has been assigned to pregnancy category C by the FDA. Animal studies have not been reported. There are no controlled data in human pregnancy. Amyl nitrite should only be given to a pregnant woman if clearly needed.

Amyl nitrite can cause harm to the fetus when it is administered to a pregnant woman because it significantly reduces systemic blood pressure and blood flow on the maternal side of the placenta.
