NOT RECOMMENDED :
- Pregnancy: studies in animals have shown a teratogenic effect of several gold salts. In clinical practice, there are currently no data of sufficient relevance to evaluate the possible malformative or foetotoxic effect of aurothiopropanolsulfonate when administered during pregnancy. As a result, its use is not recommended during pregnancy. This element does not constitute the systematic argument for counseling a termination of pregnancy but leads to an attitude of caution and oriented antenatal surveillance.
- Breast-feeding: breast-feeding is not recommended during treatment.
- Association discouraged : phenylbutazone (general route).
