Don't Rely on Pregnancy Letter Categories to Make Treatment Recommendations
Pregnancy categories (A, B, C, D, X) will start to DISAPPEAR from Rx drug labels...due to new rules on reporting pregnancy and lactation risks.
It's been a long time coming...over 20 years since FDA's labeling change initiative began. Now it's finally starting to hit drug labels.
More relevant info to help with therapy decisions will replace the A, B, C, D, and X categories...because these "letters" oversimplify and don't consistently explain the degree of fetal risk.
