Precaution

 Erythromycin is principally excreted by the liver. Caution should be exercised when erythromycin is administered to patients with impaired hepatic function.

Pregnancy

 There is no evidence of teratogenicity or any other adverse effect on reproduction in female rats fed erythromycin base (up to 0.25% of diet) prior to and during mating. This drug should be used during pregnancy only if clearly needed.

Erythromycin is excreted in breast milk, therefore cautions should be exercised when erythromycin is administered to a nursing woman.
