Description: FDA implemented a revised pregnancy and lactation labeling system. The updated labeling system replaces the pregnancy letter categories – A, B, C, D and X – used to classify prescription drugs used during pregnancy with a description of risks within the real-world context of caring for pregnant people who may need medication. This presentation provides an overview of the current pregnancy and lactation labeling system, also known as the Pregnancy and Lactation Labeling Rule (PLLR), lessons learned, and feedback received from healthcare providers. Further, it will help learners examine how prescription drug labeling can be used to inform prescribing in pregnant and lactating individuals.
