There is a wealth of information for us to use when considering medications prescribed for use in pregnancy, while breastfeeding and with children. It isn’t always easy to find this information in one place so we have put together guidance and links for you to use when making appropriate decisions with your patients.

The information and links provided are for guidance, clinical decisions remain the responsibility of the practitioner; the intention is to help prescribers find evidence based information and does not replace input from appropriate professionals or constitute medical advice for individual patients.

Please contact sam.morris2@nhs.net with any suggested edits, or any additional resources you feel would be useful to be shared as these documents will be reviewed when appropriate.
