THE SAFETY OF SULFASALAZINE DURING PREGNANCY OR BREASTFEEDING

 

THIS MEDICATION MAY CAUSE HARM TO YOUR BABY: Human studies suggest sulfasalazine has a low risk of causing birth defects. However, sulfasalazine may have potential toxicity in newborns and nursing infants due to an increased risk of neonatal jaundice. Due to the negative effects on folic acid absorption, pregnant women or women who plan to become pregnant while on sulfasalazine should take folic acid supplementation to prevent neural tube defects. Caution is recommended in nursing mothers who continue to take sulfasalazine.
