4.4       Special warnings and special precautions for use

Dolmatil should be used with caution in patients with a history of glaucoma, ileus, congenital digestive stenosis, urine retention or hyperplasia of the prostate.

           4.6       Fertility, pPregnancy and lactation

Pregnancy:

            There are only very limited data available from the use of sulpiride in pregnant       women. The safety of sulpiride during human pregnancy has not been established.

Sulpiride crosses the placenta. Studies in animals are insufficient with respect to reproductive toxicity (see section 5.3

The use of sulpiride is not recommended during pregnancy and in women of child bearing potential not using effective contraception, unless the benefits justify the potential risks.

A decrease in fertility linked to the pharmacological effects of the drug (prolactin mediated effect) was observed in treated animals.  Animal studies do not indicate direct or indirect harmful effects with respect to pregnancy, embryonal/foetal development, or and/or postnatal development.  In human, very limited clinical data on exposed pregnancies are available.  In most cases or foetal or neonatal disorders reported in the context of sulpiride use during pregnancy, alternative explanations can be suggested and seem more likely.  Therefore, the use of sulpiride is not recommended during pregnancy because of the limited experience.  If sulpiride is used during pregnancy, appropriate monitoring of the neonate should be considered in view of sulpiride safety profile.

Neonates exposed to antipsychotics, including Dolmatil, during the third trimester of pregnancy are at risk of adverse reactions including extrapyramidal and/or withdrawal symptoms that may vary in severity and duration following delivery (see Section 4.8). There have been reports of agitation, hypertonia, hypotonia, tremor, somnolence, respiratory distress, or feeding disorder. Consequently, newborns should be monitored carefully

LactationBreastfeeding:

Sulpiride is excreted into breastmilk in rather large amounts, far above the accepted value of 10% of the maternal weight-adjusted dosage in some cases, but blood concentrations in breastfed infants have not been evaluated. There is insufficient information on the effects of sulpiride in newborns/ infants

A decision must be made whether to discontinue breast-feeding or to abstain from sulpiride therapy taking into account the benefit of breastfeeding for the child and the benefit of therapy for the woman.

Fertility

A decrease in fertility linked to the pharmacological effects of the drug (prolactin mediated effect) was observed in treated animals

Sulpiride has been found in breast milk in treated women. Therefore breast-feeding is not recommended during treatment.
