THE SAFETY OF XYZAL (LEVOCETIRIZINE) DURING PREGNANCY OR BREASTFEEDING

 

THIS MEDICATION CAN CAUSE HARM TO YOUR BABY: Levocetirizine should only be used during pregnancy if medically necessary, as determined by your doctor. No adequate or well-controlled studies have looked at the use of levocetirizine during pregnancy. Due to the lack of data, some expert sources recommend treatment with alternative antihistamines that have been studied more thoroughly in pregnancy. Additionally, taking levocetirizine during the last 2 weeks of pregnancy may increase the risk of abnormal eye development in your baby, which could lead to blindness.
