PREGNANCY: No adequate or well-controlled studies have been conducted in pregnant women. Due to the lack of conclusive safety data, cabergoline should only be used in pregnancy if clearly needed. Cabergoline is classified in FDA pregnancy risk category B.

NURSING MOTHERS: Cabergoline should not be used in breastfeeding mothers because it interferes with the production of breast milk. It is not known whether cabergoline is excreted in human milk.
