The safety of betahistine in human pregnancy has not been completely established. This medicine should be used during pregnancy or lactation only if the expected therapeutic benefit is thought to outweigh any possible risk.
|Effects on ability to drive and use machines||
There is no information on the effect of betahistine on driving and using machinery.

There are no proven cases of hazardous interactions. However, since betahistine has structurally similar to histamine, interaction with antihistamines may occur.
