Triamcinolone Acetonide Injection has been classified by the US FDA as Pregnancy Category C.
Corticosteroids have been proven to be teratogenic in many species when given in doses equivalent to the human dose. Animal studies in which corticosteroids have been administered to pregnant mice, rats, and rabbits have yielded an increased incidence of cleft palate in the offspring. There are no adequate and well-controlled studies conducted in pregnant women. Corticosteroids should be used during pregnancy only if the potential benefit justifies the potential risk to the fetus. Infants born to mothers who have received corticosteroids during pregnancy should be carefully observed for signs and symptoms of hypoadrenalism.
