drugs with two pregnancy classesRegister Today!
- by pnkgirl25 Feb 7One of our drugs this week is iron. It has a pregnancy class of B and C..what the heck does that mean?
- Feb 7 by Miiki SNWhich form of iron? Iron dextran is labeled pregnancy class C. Iron sucrose is labeled pregnancy class B. They are both prescription only.
NSAIDS are pregnancy category C for the first two trimesters and pregnancy category D for the third trimester, one example of a drug that changes pregnancy categories.
- Feb 7 by pnkgirl25The drug is Ferrous Sulfate. Drug class B and C
- Feb 8 by Miiki SNThis is what my book says about ferrous sulfate in the precautions section:
Pregnancy (B) (ferric gluconate complex), (C) (iron dextran, oral products)
