    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 evidence to date regarding corticosteroid exposure in pregnancy and select pregnancy and birth outcomes is limited and inconsistent. Here we provide a narrative review of published literature summarizing the findings for oral clefts, preterm birth, birth weight, preeclampsia and gestational diabetes mellitus. The evidence is somewhat conflicting, indicating that much is still unknown regarding the risks taking prednisone during pregnancy poses to an unborn baby. However, most studies show that the risks are low, and no studies on women with IBD have shown that prednisone presents a risk of major birth defects. Despite these risks, corticosteroids are considered relatively safe throughout pregnancy when given at low doses below 15 mg/day. They should be avoided, if possible, during the first trimester, when risk for defects of the hard palate are highest.

    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).

    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. 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.
