Pregnancy of Dantrelax in details

infoPregnancy is always a special situation where every action or side effect of the drug varies when compared to a situation of a non-pregnant patient. It is not only because the pregnant woman's metabolism differs due to the hormonal and other changes happened to her, but also because every medicine or its metabolite passes to the baby and shows its action there. The only thing is, be cautious, attentive and well supervised when you take any single drug in pregnancy. The interactions can vary in pregnancy, and the dosage may differ as well. Strict supervision of the Physician is mandatory.

Dantrelax has been assigned to pregnancy category C by the FDA. Studies in animals have revealed evidence of embryotoxicity. There are no controlled data in human pregnancy. Dantrelax should only be given during pregnancy when benefit outweighs risk.

Dantrelax has been used in one uncontrolled study prophylactically prior to and after delivery in obstetric patients who were at risk for malignant hyperthermia. Relatively low doses of 100 mg/day were used 5 days prior to and 3 days after delivery. Although Dantrelax crossed the placenta, no untoward effects were noted in the fetuses or neonates.
