Is BRAFTOVI safe in pregnancy?

Is BRAFTOVI safe in pregnancy?

BRAFTOVI can harm your unborn baby. Females who are able to become pregnant should use effective non-hormonal birth control (contraception) during treatment with BRAFTOVI and for 2 weeks after the last dose of BRAFTOVI. Birth control methods that contain hormones (such as birth control pills, injections or transdermal systems) may not work as well during treatment with BRAFTOVI. Talk to your healthcare provider about birth control methods that may be right for you during this time. Your healthcare provider will do a pregnancy test before you start taking BRAFTOVI. Tell your healthcare provider right away if you become pregnant or think you might be pregnant during treatment with BRAFTOVI.
