Pregnancy and breastfeeding
The systemic concentration of diclofenac, compared with oral formulations, is lower after topical administration. Drawing on experience with NSAID treatment for systemic administration, the following is recommended: Inhibition of prostaglandin synthesis may negatively affect pregnancy and / or the embryo / fetus. Results of epidemiological studies suggest an increased risk of miscarriage and of cardiac malformation and gastroschisis after use of a prostaglandin synthesis inhibitor in early pregnancy. The absolute risk for cardiovascular malformations increased from less than 1%, up to about 1.5%.
E 'was found that the risk increases with dose and duration of therapy. In animals, administration of prostaglandin synthesis inhibitors has been shown to
result in an increase in loss of pre- and post-implantation and embryo-fetal mortality. In addition, an increased incidence of various malformations, including cardiovascular, has been reported in animals whose synthesis prostaglandin inhibitors were administered during the organogenesis period. During the first and second trimester of pregnancy, diclofenac should not be given unless clearly necessary. If diclofenac is used by a woman attempting to conceive, or during the first and second trimester of pregnancy, the dose should be kept as low as possible and the duration of the shortest possible treatment.
During the third trimester of pregnancy, all prostaglandin synthesis inhibitors may expose the fetus to:
- cardiopulmonary toxicity (with premature closure of the ductus arteriosus and pulmonary hypertension);
- renal dysfunction, which may progress to renal failure with oligoidroamnios;
The mother and the neonate, at the end of pregnancy, may be exposed to:
- possible prolongation of bleeding time, and antiplatelet effect which may occur even at very low doses;
- inhibition of uterine contractions resulting in delayed or prolonged labor.
Consequently, diclofenac is contraindicated during the third trimester of pregnancy.
Like other NSAIDs, diclofenac passes into breast milk in small quantities. However, at therapeutic doses of Itaminon are expected effects on the nursing infant. Because of the lack of controlled studies in lactating women, the product should be used during breastfeeding only on the advice of a health professional. In this circumstance, Itaminon must be applied to the breasts of nursing mothers, nor elsewhere on large areas of skin or for an extended period of time
