Ticlopidine Pregnancy Warnings

Ticlopidine has been assigned to pregnancy category B by the FDA. Animal studies failed to reveal evidence of teratogenicity, however, dosages of 200 to 400 mg/kg/day resulted in maternal and fetal toxicity. There are no controlled data in human pregnancy. Ticlopidine should be given during pregnancy only when benefit outweighs the risk.
