Pregnancy: Pregnancy Category B. In the animal studies, no evidence of harm to the fetus due to Azithromycin was found. There are, however, no adequate and well-controlled studies in pregnant women. Because animal reproduction studies are not always predictive of human response, Azithromycin should be used during pregnancy only if clearly needed. Lactation: It is not known whether Azithromycin is excreted in human milk. Because many drugs are excreted in human milk, caution should be exercised when Azithromycin is administered to a nursing woman.
