Summary

Thoroughly updated, with 127 new drug entries, the Eighth Edition of this popular reference provides practical, reliable information on over 1,175 drugs commonly prescribed to pregnant or lactating women. Each drug monograph summarizes potential side effects on the embryo and fetus and drug passage to the nursing infant. FDA Risk Factor ratings for each drug are included.

Recommendations for pregnancy and breastfeeding are listed at the top of each drug review to provide for quick reference. This edition places special emphasis on drug-induced developmental toxicity, taking dosage into consideration wherever possible.
