Is it safe to take Generic Viramune (Nevirapine) while pregnant or breastfeeding?
Generic Viramune (Nevirapine) is classed as Pregnancy Category B by the FDA, which means it is not expected to be harmful to an unborn baby. However, HIV can be passed to a fetus if not treated correctly during pregnancy. Make sure you take all your medication properly if you are pregnant. Also inform your doctor before taking Generic Viramune (Nevirapine) if you are pregnant or plan on becoming pregnant during treatment.
Women suffering from HIV or AIDS should not breastfeed. Even if a baby is born without HIV, the virus may be passed to a nursing infant through breast milk.
