Pregnancy of Miconazole in details

Pregnancy 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.

Pregnancy predisposes patients to the development of vaginal candidiasis due to changes in the vaginal tract. Miconazole has been used in several clinical trials for the treatment of vaginal candidiasis, generally during the second and third trimester, without evidence of fetal harm. In a review of 229,101 deliveries to Michigan Medicaid patients, 7266 first-trimester exposures to Miconazole and 31,503 exposures any time during pregnancy were recorded. A total of 304 birth defects were reported with first trimester exposure (273 expected) and included (observed/expected) 77/73 cardiovascular defects, 14/13 clefts, 3 spina bifida, 4/4 oral clefts, 22/15 polydactyly, 12/9 limb reductions, and 20/17 hypospadias (written communication, Franz Rosa, MD, Food and Drug Administration, 1994). These data do not support an association between first-trimester Miconazole use and birth defects.

Miconazole has not officially been assigned to a pregnancy category by the FDA. In clinical trials, Miconazole treatment of vaginal candidiasis has not been associated with fetal harm. Miconazole is only recommended for use during pregnancy when there are no alternatives and benefit outweighs risk.

Miconazole breastfeeding

When a drug is taken when the patient is breast feeding, a part of the drug is secreted in her breast milk and is passed to the baby. The dosage of the medicine to mother and baby are different, and many drugs actions are side effects when you take them without a disease, and what if you the baby takes them without a disease? What if the drug is contraindicated in newborns, infants or children? So, breastfeeding is a very alarming situation when the mother is on medications. Ask your Physician or Pediatrician about the effect of the drug on the baby and how much is excreted in breast milk and if it harms the baby!
