THE SAFETY OF CLONIDINE DURING PREGNANCY OR BREASTFEEDING

 

THIS MEDICATION MAY CAUSE HARM TO YOUR BABY: There is limited information available on the safety of clonidine during pregnancy; however, available studies suggest the use of clonidine during pregnancy poses a low risk of harm to the baby. There have been reports of transient high blood pressure in newborns exposed to clonidine late in pregnancy, but there is no evidence that clonidine increases the risk of birth defects. There have been reports of side effects associated with exposure to clonidine in breastfeeding infants as well as adverse effects on maternal milk production. It is recommended that you use this medication only after weighing the potential risks versus benefits of use during pregnancy or while breastfeeding.
