    • Overview

      As medication use experts, pharmacists are often asked to provide recommendations for the "safest" treatment option during pregnancy and lactation. Often, little clinical data exist to guide these decisions and what data does exist may be somewhat contradictory or controversial. This activity aims to review the approach to assessing risks of medication during pregnancy and lactation based on available clinical information, while also examining guidelines related to the treatment of depression and nausea in pregnant and postpartum women. Participants will gain a clearer understanding of medications that are felt to be generally safe and unsafe for treatment of depression and nausea during pregnancy and while breast feeding through exploration of available literature.
