Is COMBIGAN safe in pregnancy?

Is COMBIGAN safe in pregnancy?

There are no adequate and well-controlled studies in pregnant women; however, in animal studies, brimonidine
crossed the placenta and entered into the fetal circulation to a limited extent. Because animal reproduction studies are not always predictive of human response, COMBIGAN should be used during pregnancy only if the potential benefit to the mother justifies the potential risk to the fetus.
