Pancrelipase Pregnancy Warnings

Pancrelipase has been assigned to pregnancy category C by the FDA. Animal reproduction studies have not been conducted with pancrelipase. It is not known whether pancrelipase can cause fetal harm when administered to a pregnant woman or can affect reproduction capacity. The risk and benefit of pancrelipase should be considered in the context of the need to provide adequate nutritional support to a pregnant woman with exocrine pancreatic insufficiency. Adequate caloric intake during pregnancy is important for normal maternal weight gain and fetal growth. The manufacturer recommends caution when administering pancrelipase during pregnancy.
