Pregnancy of Slimfast 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.

Slimfast has been assigned to pregnancy category X by the FDA. High-dose animal studies have failed to reveal evidence of embryotoxicity or teratogenicity. There are no controlled data in human pregnancy. Since weight loss offers no potential benefit to a pregnant woman and may result in fetal harm, Slimfast is contraindicated during pregnancy. If Slimfast is used during pregnancy, or if the patient becomes pregnant while taking this drug, the patient should be apprised of the potential hazard of maternal weight loss to the fetus.
