Valtrex During Pregnancy

There is not enough data concerning the use of Valtrex in pregnancy.

Valtrex should be used during pregnancy only when the potential benefits exceed the potential risks. The data records of the outcome of pregnancy in women taking Valtrex or Zovirax (acyclovir – an active metabolite of valaciclovir) showed no increase in birth defects in children.

Since the register included a small number of women taking valacyclovir during pregnancy, the reliable and definitive conclusions about the safety of valaciclovir in pregnancy can’t be done.
