- haloperidol (Haldol),

Is Mirapex safe to use during pregnancy or while breastfeeding?
Pramipexole has not been adequately evaluated in pregnant women. Due to the lack of conclusive safety data, pramipexole should be used in pregnancy only if the potential benefit justifies the potential risk to the fetus. Pramipexole is classified as FDA pregnancy risk category C.
It is not known if pramipexole is excreted in breast milk. Due to the lack of conclusive safety data, pramipexole should be used cautiously in females who are breastfeeding.
