Intranasal corticosteroid receives FDA pregnancy Category B rating for allergic rhinitis

ased risk for overall congenital malformation (birth defects), from the use of intranasal budesonide during early pregnancy. Early pregnancy is the period during which most major organ malformations can occur. This evidence demonstrates that intranasal and inhaled budesonide, the active compound in RHINOCORT AQUA, does not increase the risk of abnormalities when administered during pregnancy.

"Pregnant women suffering from significant symptoms of allergic rhinitis should be appropriately treated with medications that offer potential benefit and minimal risk," said Joan C.

Despite adverse effects in animal reproductive studies, it would appear that the possibility of fetal harm is remote (see PRECAUTIONS in full Prescribing Information). Nevertheless, because studies in humans cannot rule out the possibility of harm, RHINOCORT AQUA should be used in pregnancy only if clearly indicated.

It is not known whether budesonide is excreted in human milk. Because other corticosteroids are excreted in human milk, caution should be exercised when RHINOCORT AQUA Nasal Spray is administered to nursing women.
