However, based on animal studies, teriflunomide may increase the risk of teratogenic effects or fetal death when administered to a pregnant woman.

Pregnancy must be avoided during Aubagio treatment or prior to the completion of an accelerated elimination procedure after Aubagio treatment.

 

Can I take this while breastfeeding?

Teriflunomide was detected in rat milk following a single oral dose of teriflunomide. It is not known whether this drug is excreted in human milk.
