THE SAFETY OF BETAPACE (SOTALOL) DURING PREGNANCY OR BREASTFEEDING

 

THIS MEDICATION CAN CAUSE HARM TO YOUR BABY: Betapace (sotalol) should only be taken during pregnancy if the benefits of treatment outweigh the potential risks, as determined by your doctor. This medication crosses the placenta to reach the developing baby and can cause low heart rate or arrythmias in the baby, which could lead to death. In one report, sotalol was also considered possibly related to fatal birth defects that occurred in a newborn. Additionally, this medication may increase the risk that your baby is born small for his or her age at birth. Due to the risks, some experts do not recommend sotalol for the treatment of some heart conditions during pregnancy.
