Comments: In female patients using hormonal contraceptives to prevent pregnancy, concomitant use with this drug may decrease contraceptive reliability; use of adequate methods of non-hormonal contraception should be discussed.

There are no controlled data in human pregnancy.

US FDA pregnancy category Not assigned: The US FDA has amended the pregnancy labeling rule for prescription drug products to require labeling that includes a summary of risk, a discussion about the data supporting that summary, and relevant information to help health care providers make prescribing decisions and counsel women about the use of drugs during pregnancy.
