October 12, 2015

Exposure to second-generation antipsychotics during the first trimester did not significantly increase risk for major malformations among infants, according to study findings in the American Journal of Psychiatry.

“In 2008, the National Pregnancy Registry for Atypical Antipsychotics was established in an ongoing effort to obtain reproductive safety data regarding fetal exposure to second-generation antipsychotics … The objective of this Registry is to obtain reproductive safety data, such as teratogenicity and risk for adverse obstetrical and neonatal outcomes associated with in utero exposure to second-generation antipsychotics,” Lee S. Cohen, MD, of Massachusetts General Hospital, Boston, and colleagues wrote.
