Tabradol and Pregnancy

Tell your doctor if you are pregnant or plan to become pregnant.

The FDA categorizes medications based on safety for use during pregnancy. Five categories - A, B, C, D, and X, are used to classify the possible risks to an unborn baby when a medication is taken during pregnancy.

Cyclobenzaprine falls into category B. Studies in animals have failed to demonstrate a risk to the unborn baby and there are no well-controlled studies in pregnant women.

Tabradol and Lactation

Tell your doctor if you are breastfeeding or plan to breastfeed.

It is not known if cyclobenzaprine is excreted in human breast milk or if it will harm your nursing baby.
