THE SAFETY OF ACEBUTOLOL DURING PREGNANCY OR BREASTFEEDING

 

THIS MEDICATION CAN CAUSE HARM TO YOUR BABY: Acebutolol should only be used during pregnancy if the benefits of treatment outweigh the potential risks to the baby, as determined by your doctor. This medication crosses the placenta to reach the developing baby and could lead to health problems in your baby. Taking acebutolol while pregnant can cause reduced birth weight, low blood pressure, slowed heart rate, and low blood sugar in the baby. Some studies have also associated beta-blockers, like acebutolol, with a higher risk of birth defects.
