Is dronabinol-oral safe to take if I'm pregnant or breastfeeding?
There are no adequate and well-controlled studies evaluating the use of dronabinol during pregnancy. Dronabinol should only be used during pregnancy if the potential benefit to the mother justifies the potential risk to the unborn baby. Dronabinol is classified as FDA pregnancy risk category C. (Animal studies have shown adverse effects on the fetus, but there are no adequate studies in humans.)
