I had absolutely no idea you could take Ambien during pg?

Aren't you supposed to wean off of it before getting pg?

BIH, it was offered to me in the hospital and don't you remember Naomi's story about taking it during labor?


But, as I lay awake and unable to go to sleep at 3 am, I was thinking about it and wondering why it was ok for pg women when it hasn't been on the market more than about 5 yrs. THat's not very long in terms of side effects showing up in the general population, etc.

Ambien is catagory C--which means there are no known problems with it. Theoretically if a mom was taking it all the time, the baby would be at risk of withdrawal symptoms, but just taking it once a day for sleep wouldn't be a problem.

Are you sure? Diflucan is a category C drug and there have been known cases of it causing birth defects. It is considered safe for one time use for a yeast infection, but long term for thrush while pg is dangerous. My ob won't rx anything that isn't an A or B unless there is a damned good reason for it.

Zolpidem is in the FDA pregnancy category B. This means that it is unlikely to harm an unborn baby. Do not take zolpidem without first talking to your doctor if you are pregnant or could become pregnant during treatment.

Ahhh, I forgot Naomi's hallucinations. I just remembered that my neighbor (who has taken Ambien EVERY NIGHT for the past almost 3 years) was told to wean off of it before ttc/getting pregnant.

You are all right, it is catagory B. I thought it was B, but when I looked it up on Medscape, that said it was catagory C. I checked the actual info on www.ambien.com, and it is catagory B.

(The actual info if anyone is interestedClick here to enlarge
Teratogenic effects: Pregnancy Category B. Studies to assess the effects of zolpidem on human reproduction and development have not been conducted.

Teratology studies were conducted in rats and rabbits.

In rats, adverse maternal and fetal effects occurred at 20 and 100 mg base/kg and included dose-related maternal lethargy and ataxia and a dose-related trend to incomplete ossification of fetal skull bones. Underossification of various fetal bones indicates a delay in maturation and is often seen in rats treated with sedative/hypnotic drugs. There were no teratogenic effects after zolpidem administration. The no-effect dose for maternal or fetal toxicity was 4 mg base/kg or 5 times the maximum human dose on a mg/m2 basis.

In rabbits, dose-related maternal sedation and decreased weight gain occurred at all doses tested. At the high dose, 16 mg base/kg, there was an increase in postimplantation fetal loss and underossification of sternebrae in viable fetuses. These fetal findings in rabbits are often secondary to reductions in maternal weight gain. There were no frank teratogenic effects. The no-effect dose for fetal toxicity was 4 mg base/kg or 7 times the maximum human dose on a mg/m2 basis.

Because animal reproduction studies are not always predictive of human response, this drug should be used during pregnancy only if clearly needed.

Nonteratogenic effects: Studies to assess the effects on children whose mothers took zolpidem during pregnancy have not been conducted. However, children born of mothers taking sedative/hypnotic drugs may be at some risk for withdrawal symptoms from the drug during the postnatal period. In addition, neonatal flaccidity has been reported in infants born of mothers who received sedative/hypnotic drugs during pregnancy.
