Pregnancy
There have been no adequately controlled clinical studies of the use of antihistamines in pregnant women. However, cases of retrolental fibroplasia have been described in neonates whose mothers took antihistamines in the last months of pregnancy. Accordingly, the use of chloropyramine during pregnancy is contraindicated.
Breastfeeding
The use of chloropyramine is contraindicated during breastfeeding.
If it is necessary to use the drug during lactation, stop breast-feeding.

  • The use of chloropyramine requires special caution because antihistamines are more likely to cause side effects (dizziness, drowsiness, drop in blood pressure (BP)) in these patients.
  • Patients with impaired liver function
  • Dose reduction may be required due to decreased metabolism of chloropyramine in liver disease.
  • Patients with impaired renal function
  • Changes to the drug regimen and dose reduction may be required due to the fact that chloropyramine is mainly excreted by the kidneys.
