The management of pregnant women with medical conditions always requires a balancing of risks. With regard to the use of medications, the clinician must consider the risks of not treating the mother versus the risks of exposing the developing fetus to a particular drug or combination of drugs. The former can be reasonably projected from clinical acumen and a brief online search. Building an overview of the latter requires the evaluation of published and unpublished reports of human and animal studies on a variety of therapeutic alternatives in various stages of pregnancy and during lactation. In this eighth edition of Drugs in Pregnancy and Lactation , Briggs and colleagues have gathered this information and present the data on several levels.
