Pregnancy Category C is given to medicines that have not been studied in pregnant humans but that do appear to cause harm to the fetus in animal studies.

Food and Drug Administration (FDA) uses a category system to classify the possible risks to a fetus when a specific medicine is taken during pregnancy. It should be noted that the high doses of Ambien used in these animal studies caused toxicity (such as poor weight gain) in the mothers. Also, medicines that have not been studied in any pregnant women or animals are automatically given a pregnancy Category C rating. Therefore, a pregnancy Category C medicine may be given to a pregnant woman if the healthcare provider believes that the benefits to the woman outweigh any possible risks to the unborn child. He or she will consider the benefits and risks of taking Ambien during pregnancy before making a recommendation in your particular situation. It is probably this toxicity that indirectly caused the problems for the fetuses, not the medication directly. The U.S. Ambien is a category C drug. When given to pregnant rabbits at high doses in early pregnancy, Ambien increased the risk of miscarriages and problems in bone formation. When given to pregnant rats at high doses, Ambien caused problems in bone formation of the fetal skull. Pregnancy Category C is given to medicines that have not been studied in pregnant humans but that do appear to cause harm to the fetus in animal studies. When given later in pregnancy (and during lactation), the medication decreased pup survival and growth. It is important to note that animals do not always respond to medicines the same way that humans do. If you are pregnant or thinking about becoming pregnant, let your healthcare provider know. None of the animal studies suggested that Ambien caused birth defects.
