Moricizine Pregnancy and Breastfeeding Warnings

Moricizine is also known as: Ethmozine

Moricizine Pregnancy Warnings

Moricizine has been assigned to pregnancy category B by the FDA. Animal studies have revealed evidence of decreased maternal and fetal weight gain, possibly related to increased litter size, but failed to reveal evidence of embryo- or fetolethality. There are no controlled data in human pregnancy. Moricizine should be given during pregnancy only when need has been clearly established.

Moricizine Breastfeeding Warnings

Moricizine is excreted into human milk. There are no reports on the effect of moricizine in nursing infants. Because of the potential for serious adverse effects in a nursing infant, a decision should be made whether to discontinue the drug or discontinue nursing, taking into account the importance of the drug to the mother.
