Lamivudine and Pregnancy: Is There a Risk?
In studies, giving lamivudine to pregnant rabbits appeared to increase the risk of early miscarriages, although this was not seen in studies involving rats. In both rats and rabbits, lamivudine did not seem to increase the risk of birth defects. In general, case reports of lamivudine use in pregnant women suggest that it is probably safe for use during pregnancy.
