Use of Antimicrobials During Pregnancy or Breastfeeding The use of antimicrobials during pregnancy should be balanced by the risk of fetal toxicity, including anatomical anomalies. A number of factors determine the degree of transfer of antibiotics across the placenta: lipid solubility, degree of ionization, molecular weight, protein binding, placental maturation, and placental and fetal blood flow. The FDA provides 5 categories to indicate the level of risk to the fetus: (1) Category A: fetal harm seems remote since controlled studies have not demonstrated a risk to the fetus; (2) Category B: animal reproduction studies have not shown a fetal risk but no controlled studies in pregnant women have been done, or animal studies have shown an adverse effect that has not been confirmed in human studies (penicillin, amoxicillin, ampicillin, cephalexin/cefazolin, azithromycin, clindamycin, vancomycin, zanamivir); (3) Category C: studies in animals have shown an adverse effect on the fetus but there are no studies in women and no animal data are available; the potential benefit of the drug may justify the possible risk to the fetus (chloramphenicol, ciprofloxacin, gentamicin, levofloxacin, oseltamivir, rifampin); (4) Category D: evidence exists of human fetal risk but the benefits may outweigh such risk (doxycycline); (5) Category X: The drug is contraindicated since animal or human studies have shown fetal abnormalities or fetal risk (ribavirin).

Critical evaluations of duration of therapy have been carried out in very few infectious diseases. In general, a longer duration of therapy should be used (1) for tissues in which antibiotic concentrations may be relatively low (eg, abscess, CNS infection) and tissues in which repair following infection-mediated damage is slow (eg, bone), (2) when the organisms are less susceptible, (3) when a relapse of infection is unacceptable (eg, CNS infections), or (4) when the host is immunocompromised in some way.
