Methocarbamol Pregnancy Warnings

Methocarbamol has been assigned to pregnancy category C by the FDA. Animal studies have not been reported. There are no controlled data in human pregnancy. Methocarbamol is not recommended for use in women who are or may become pregnant (particularly early pregnancy) unless in the judgment of the physician, the potential benefits outweigh the potential risks.

Methocarbamol Breastfeeding Warnings

There are no data on the excretion of methocarbamol into human milk. Because many drugs are excreted into human milk, and because of the potential for serious adverse reactions in nursing infants from methocarbamol, nursing is not recommended for mothers on methocarbamol.
