Teriflunomide must not be used during pregnancy because it may cause serious harm (such as birth defects, death) in an unborn baby. Women of childbearing age must have a negative pregnancy test before starting this medication. Men and women must use reliable forms of birth control (such as condoms, birth control pills) while taking teriflunomide and for as long as directed by your doctor to prevent pregnancy. After stopping treatment with teriflunomide, your doctor may prescribe a different drug to help speed up the removal of teriflunomide from your body. If you become pregnant or think you may be pregnant or cause a pregnancy, tell your doctor right away. (See also How to Use and Precautions sections.)This drug may rarely cause serious (possibly fatal) liver disease. Careful monitoring by your doctor may help decrease your risk. Your doctor will perform liver function tests before you start treatment and once a month for at least the first 6 months of treatment. Tell your doctor right away if you notice nausea/vomiting that doesn't stop, dark urine, loss of appetite, stomach/abdominal pain, or yellowing eyes/skin.
