THE SAFETY OF OMALIZUMAB DURING PREGNANCY OR BREASTFEEDING

 

THIS MEDICATION MAY CAUSE HARM TO YOUR BABY: Pregnancy is not considered a reason to withhold omalizumab due to the risk of negative effects on both mother and baby associated with poorly controlled or uncontrolled asthma during pregnancy. There have been limited human studies that have looked at the safety of omalizumab during pregnancy, but the available evidence suggests a low risk of harm with use of this medication during pregnancy. It is important to evaluate the benefits to the mother and potential harm to the nursing baby before deciding to continue or discontinue breastfeeding while on this medication.
