Avandaryl is not safe for pregnant women. It is considered a Category C drug throughout all three trimesters. This means that animal studies have shown that the drug may cause birth defects or that there has not yet been enough research to confirm the drug's effects on the developing fetus. There is not enough data to confirm whether Avandaryl is safe for women to take while breast-feeding. You should discuss with your doctor the risks to a nursing infant. It is important to keep your diabetes under control at all times, so be sure to speak with your doctor before discontinuing your Avandaryl treatment.
