Brief Summary:
The purpose of the National Pregnancy Registry for Atypical Antipsychotics is to determine the frequency of birth defects among infants exposed to atypical antipsychotics.

Condition or disease
Use of Atypical Antipsychotics During Pregnancy Schizophrenia Bipolar Disorder Depression Schizoaffective Disorder

Detailed Description:

The National Pregnancy Registry for Atypical Antipsychotics is dedicated to evaluating the safety of atypical antipsychotic medications that may be taken by women during pregnancy to treat a wide range of mood, anxiety, or psychiatric disorders. The primary goal of this Registry is to determine the frequency of major malformations, such as heart defects, cleft lip, or neural tube defects, in infants exposed to atypical antipsychotics during pregnancy. We are currently studying the following medications:

  • Abilify (aripiprazole)
  • Aristada (aripiprazole lauroxil)
  • Clozaril (clozapine)
  • Fanapt (iloperidone)
  • Geodon (ziprasidone)
  • Invega (paliperidone)
  • Latuda (lurasidone)
  • Rexulti (brexpiprazole)
  • Risperdal (risperidone)
  • Saphris (asenapine)
  • Seroquel (quetiapine)
  • Zyprexa (olanzapine)

Group/Cohort
Pregnant women using atypical antipsychotic(s)
Pregnant women who have taken at least one type of atypical antipsychotic at some point during this pregnancy.
Pregnant women not using atypical antipsychotics
Pregnant women who have not taken an atypical antipsychotic during pregnancy.



Primary Outcome Measures :
  1. Rate of major malformations in infants exposed to atypical antipsychotics during the first trimester of pregnancy [ Time Frame: Birth to six months old ]
    The primary outcome for this study is rates of major malformations in infants exposed in utero to atypical antipsychotics during the first trimester of pregnancy. This data is collected through pediatric medical record review through the first six months of infants' lives.


Secondary Outcome Measures :
  1. Maternal health outcomes [ Time Frame: During pregnancy ]
    Maternal health outcomes during pregnancy will also be assessed in women taking atypical antipsychotics during pregnancy (for example: weight gain, gestational hypertension, gestational diabetes, preeclampsia)

  2. Neonatal health outcomes [ Time Frame: Birth to six months old ]
    Other neonatal health outcomes will also be assessed in infants exposed in utero to atypical antipsychotics (for example: birth weight/length, Apgar scores, NICU admission rates, and any other neonatal complications). Presence of extrapyramidal symptoms from birth to one month old will also be assessed in infants exposed to atypical antipsychotics proximate to delivery.
