Non-steroidal anti-inflammatory drugs (NSAIDs): avoid use in pregnancy Prescriber Update 43(3): 31–


Key messages

NSAIDs are contraindicated in the third trimester of pregnancy.
NSAIDs should not be used during the first two trimesters of pregnancy unless the expected benefits to the mother outweigh the risks to the fetus. If there is a compelling need for NSAID treatment during the first or second trimester, limit use to the lowest effective dose and shortest duration possible.
Enquire about NSAID use in people who are pregnant or planning pregnancy and advise them not to self-medicate with these medicines during pregnancy.
