Warnings

Pregnancy

Patanol eye drop was found not to be teratogenic in rats and rabbits.
However, rats treated at 600 mg/kg/day, or 93,750 times the MROHD and rabbits treated at 400 mg/kg/day, or 62,500 times the MROHD, during organogenesis showed a decrease in live fetuses. There are, however, no adequate and well controlled studies in pregnant women. Because animal studies are not always predictive of human responses, Patanol eye drop should be used in pregnant women only if the potential benefit to the mother justifies the potential risk to the embryo or fetus.

Nursing Mothers

Patanol eye drop has been identified in the milk of nursing rats following oral administration. Patanol eye drop is not known whether topical ocular administration could result in sufficient systemic absorption to produce detectable quantities in the human breast milk. Nevertheless, caution should be exercised when Patanol eye drops 0.1% are administered to a nursing mother.
