    Is prednisone and plaquenil safe during pregnancy


    -The short-term use of corticosteroids antepartum for the prevention of respiratory distress syndrome does not seem to pose a risk to the fetus or newborn infant. Teratogenicity including increased incidence of cleft palate have occurred in animal studies.

    The use of HCQ during pregnancy has long been debated, but nowadays, consensus is reached that it is safe and it is frequently prescribed during pregnancy to diminish flares 2, 3. However, reports on the detailed effects of HCQ on pregnancy outcomes are scarce and mostly focus on teratogenicity. My rheumatologist prescribed me Plaquenil, he’s assured me it’s safe during pregnancy and I plan to contact my OB tomorrow to get her thoughts. I’m just so anxious because I want the pain to go away and enjoy my pregnancy as much as one can but I also don’t want to do anything at all to harm my unborn baby. I started with plaquenil last year, yes it took almost 6 months to get a level in your body, it does help, trust me. I was on Prednisone 7.5 to 10 mg per day, had a bad flair up and I am on 40 mg per day, last Friday the dr.''s told me to go down by 5 mg per week, so from 40mg to 35 mg per day.

    Reduced placental and birth weight have been recorded in animals and humans after long term treatment. A number of cohort and case controlled studies in humans suggest maternal corticosteroid use in the first trimester produces a slight increased risk of cleft lip with or without cleft palate (increased from 1 out of 1000 to 3 to 5 out of 1000 infants).

  7. She put me on 20mg of prednisone and i'll have to go see her again in a weeek to see if my platelets are going up.

    OBJECTIVE The use of hydroxychloroquine HCQ in pregnancy remains controversial. The recent demonstration that HCQ passes across the placenta, with cord blood concentrations nearly identical to those found in maternal blood, emphasizes the need for careful evaluation of pregnancies in women receiving HCQ. In every pregnancy, a woman starts out with a 3-5% chance of having a baby with a birth defect. This is called her background risk. Using prednisone or prednisolone is not expected to significantly increase this background chance. There has been some conflicting information about the use of prednisone/prednisolone during the first trimester. Hi, I'm new to posting here. I have lupus, and I had my daughter in Feb. 05. I have never taken plaquenil as I have a seizure disorder as well, however, I do know that my Rheumy told me that the only safe drug to take during pregnancy is prednisone.

    Chloroquine-induced Pruritus Itching prior to the administration of chloroquine could be as a result of the interaction of parasitized erythrocyte with storage sites of itching mediator rather than chloroquine or it metabolites. On the other hand, the itching can result from the interaction of unidentified toxins or unidentified components of lysed erythrocyte with storage vesicles of itching mediators such as histamine and bradykinin 1.
