Prevacid During Pregnancy & Breastfeeding

by on May 3, 2012

Prevacid (Lansoprazole) is considered a pregnancy category B medication which indicates that side effects in relation to pregnancy have not been studied thoroughly.

However, there is no indication that Prevacid or lansoprazole would be unsafe for pregnant women. It is best to discuss the potential side effects with your doctor when pursuing this treatment option during a pregnancy. As always, tell your doctor if you are pregnant or plan to become pregnant.
