Methylprednisolone is a corticosteroid (glucocorticosteroid) used orally and injectably (IM and IV).
STATE OF KNOWLEDGE
- The data published in pregnant women treated with corticosteroids in the 1st trimester of pregnancy, regardless of the molecule and the route of administration, are reassuring (the data are numerous and the reduction in use is important). It can be considered to date that the occurrence of facial slits evoked with corticosteroids by the general route is not retained.
Fetal and neonatal aspect
- The placental passage of methylprednisolone is of the order of 40%.
- Intrauterine growth delays and low birth weights have been reported in children of mothers treated with long-term corticosteroids, in particular by general route in the context of chronic pathologies (lupus, asthma, organ transplant...). The proper role of these pathologies cannot be excluded.
- An impact on the fetal and neonatal adrenal gland is theoretically possible with all corticosteroids administered to the mother by the general route at the end of pregnancy.
- However, the impact on the neonatal adrenal gland is unlikely with maintenance dose treatment (from 4 to 12 mg/d) with methylprednisolone during pregnancy.
In anticipation of pregnancy / In preconception
- As with any chronic pathology, a preconception consultation is desirable, in order to ensure the correct therapeutic balance of the disease concerned before pregnancy.
- It is not justified to stop or modify a treatment with methylprednisolone, whatever its route of administration.
Discovery of pregnancy during treatment
- Reassure the patient about the malformative risk of methylprednisolone.
- If treatment is to be continued, see "Treating a pregnant woman".
Treating a pregnant woman
- Methylprednisolone can be used in an effective dosage, regardless of the term of pregnancy, the route of administration (including bolus) and the duration of treatment.
- If treatment with methylprednisolone is continued until delivery, inform the team caring for the newborn in principle (see State of Knowledge).
- The amount of methylprednisone ingested via milk is very small: the child receives about 1% of the maternal dose (in mg/kg).
- The elimination half-life of methylprednisolone in milk is approximately 2 hours.
- No particular events have been reported to date in children breastfed by mothers taking methylprednisolone.
In view of these elements :
By injection (IM or IV): it is preferable to wait about 4 hours after an injection before putting the child back to the breast (2 half-lives).
By mouth :
- up to 60 mg/d, the use of methylprednisolone is possible during breastfeeding.
- beyond 60 mg / d for a period of more than a week or in the case of very high doses (500 to 1000 mg / d), it is preferable to wait about 4 hours after taking before putting the child back to the breast (2 half-lives).
