Pregnancy & Lactation
Pregnancy Category B. There are no adequate and well-controlled studies of Naftifine Cream in pregnant women. Because animal reproduction studies are not always predictive of human response, Naftifine Cream should be used during pregnancy only if the potential benefit justifies the potential risk to the fetus.
Nursing Mothers: It is not known whether this drug is excreted in human milk. Because many drugs are excreted in human milk, caution should be exercised when Naftifine Cream is administered to a nursing woman.
Use in Special Population
Pediatric Use: The safety and effectiveness of Naftifine Cream have been established in the age group 12-17 with interdigital tinea pedis and tinea cruris. Safety and effectiveness in pediatric patients <12 years of age have not been established.
Geriatric Use: Clinical studies of Naftifine Cream did not include sufficient numbers of subjects aged 65 and over to determine whether they respond differently from younger subjects.
