Stacy Wiegman, PharmD, Pharmacy, answeredNo studies have yet been done to determine whether pantoprazole is safe for pregnant or breastfeeding women. Discuss the risks with your doctor before you start taking this medication. Tell your doctor if you plan to become pregnant.
Honor Society of Nursing (STTI) answered
Pantoprazole is probably safe to use during pregnancy. It is a category B drug, which means that it has not been found to cause harm to unborn babies in animal studies. Ask your doctor about the safety of using pantoprazole while pregnant.
The safety of pantoprazole during breastfeeding is unknown, so it is best to avoid taking it while nursing.
