If pregnant or breastfeeding
Use in Lactation: Telfast is not recommended for nursing women unless, in the physician's judgment, the potential benefit to the patient outweighs the potential risk to the infant. There are no data on the content of human milk after administering fexofenadine. However, when terfenadine was administered to nursing mothers, fexofenadine was found to cross into human breast milk.
Exposure of rats to fexofenadine and terfenadine through the administration of terfenadine at dietary doses of 150 and 300 mg/kg/day throughout pregnancy and lactation (corresponding to systemic exposure at levels (AUC) approximately 3- and 6-fold higher than those anticipated in clinical use) caused decreased pup weight gain and survival. The relative risks of these effects from terfenadine or fexofenadine are unknown. Effects on pups exposed to fexofenadine only during lactation are unknown.
Use in Pregnancy: Category B2. Reproductive toxicity of fexofenadine in animals was assessed through terfenadine exposure. No evidence of teratogenicity was observed in animal reproduction studies (rat and rabbit) when terfenadine was given at oral doses of up to 300 mg/kg/day throughout organogenesis, which corresponds to levels of systemic fexofenadine exposure 4- and 32-fold higher, respectively, than those anticipated in clinical use. Decreased pup weight and survival occurred in rats when terfenadine was given at oral doses of 150 mg/kg/day and above throughout pregnancy and lactation.There are no studies in pregnant women exposed to fexofenadine alone or through the administration of terfenadine.
Keep out of reach of children. In case of overdose, Standard measures to remove any unabsorbed drug should be employed. Symptomatic and supportive treatment is recommended.²
