Use in pregnancy and lactation : There is no adequate and well-controlled studies in pregnant women. Remdesivir should be used during pregnancy only if the potential benefit justifies the potential risk for the mother and the fetus. There is no information regarding the presence of Remdesivir in human milk, the effects on the breastfed infant, or the effects on milk production. Because of the potential for viral transmission to SARS-CoV-2-negative infants and adverse reactions from the drug in breastfeeding infants, the developmental and health benefits of
breast feeding should be considered along with the mother’s clinical need for Remdesivir and any potential adverse effects on the breastfed child from Remdesivir or from the underlying maternal condition.
Packing: Each combipack contains one vial of lyophilized powder of Remdesivir INN 100 mg and two ampoules of 10ml water for injection BP.
