Pregnancy and breastfeeding
Pregnancy Data from a limited number of exposed pregnancies indicate no adverse effects of cromolyn on pregnancy or on the fetus / neonate. Animal studies do not indicate direct or indirect harmful effects on pregnancy, development of the embryo / fetus, parturition or postnatal development. Since the systemic exposure of cromolyn after topical application in the eye is negligible, no effects on the nursing fetus / child are expected. Lecrosine can be used in pregnancy. Breastfeeding No effects on breastfed newborns / infants are anticipated, since the systemic exposure of lactating women to cromolyn sodium is negligible. Lecrosine can be used during breastfeeding. Fertility No effects on fertility are expected as systemic exposure to cromolyn sodium is negligible. Sodium cromoglycate has no effect on fertility in animals, even at high systemic doses.
