Use Pregnancy Lactation
Ferric maltol is not absorbed systemically as an intact complex following oral administration, and maternal use is not expected to result in fetal exposure to the drug. Ferric maltol may be considered during pregnancy if necessary.
Ferric maltol is not available systemically and is therefore unlikely to pass into the mother's milk. Ferric maltol can be used in lactating women if clinically needed.
