National Pregnancy Registry for Atypical Antipsychotics

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 goal of this Registry is to gather information on the safety of these medications during pregnancy, as current data is limited. All pregnant women ages 18-45 are eligible to enroll in the registry. The Registry website houses information for both participants and clinicians, including enrollment guidelines, resources on atypical antipsychotics, and notes on some of preliminary research findings.
