Impoyz and Pregnancy

No well-controlled studies have been done in humans. In animal studies, pregnant animals were given this medication and had some babies born with problems when the medication was given under the skin. Since Impoyz is given topically, there is minimal medication in the body. Therefore, this medication may be used if the potential benefits to the mother outweigh the potential risks to the unborn child.

Impoyz and Lactation

Tell your doctor if you are breastfeeding or plan to breastfeed.

It is not known if Impoyz crosses into human milk. Because many medications can cross into human milk and because of the possibility for serious adverse reactions in nursing infants with use of this medication, a choice should be made whether to stop nursing or stop the use of this medication. Your doctor and you will decide if the benefits outweigh the risk of using Impoyz.
