Dirithromycin Pregnancy Warnings

Dirithromycin has been assigned to pregnancy category C by the FDA. Animal data have revealed evidence of significantly decreased fetal weight and ossification after pregnant mice or rats were given eight times the maximum recommended human dose (on a mg/m2 basis). Animal data failed to reveal evidence of impaired fertility. There are no controlled data in human pregnancy. Dirithromycin should only be given during pregnancy when benefit outweighs risk.
