OBOS Post: Pregnancy Exposure Registries
Yesterday at Our Bodies Our Blog, I pointed to some resources on the effects of drugs (including OTC products) in pregnancy and lactation, and also provided the FDA’s list of pregnancy exposure registries and an explanation of these registries. Enjoy!
Update: This week the FDA proposed a new rule for prescription drug labeling with the intent of providing clearer information on drug effects on pregnancy and breastfeeding. The new system would remove the mysterious letter categories for describing pregnancy-related risks and would add new sections to labels to describe fetal risk and other considerations. Public comments on the proposed rule are being accepted through August 27, 2008.
