THE SAFETY OF CLOZARIL DURING PREGNANCY OR BREASTFEEDING

 

THIS MEDICATION MAY CAUSE HARM TO YOUR BABY: Clozaril should only be used during pregnancy or breastfeeding if it is required. Human studies that have looked at the safety of Clozaril during pregnancy have not shown an increased risk of birth defects with this medication. Taking Clozaril during the third trimester of pregnancy may increase the risk of extrapyramidal symptoms (drug-induced movement disorders) and withdrawal symptoms in newborn babies. Nursing infants exposed to Clozaril should be monitored for adverse effects including drowsiness and neurodevelopmental delays.
