Treatment in late pregnancy by benzodiazepine even at low doses, may be responsible in the newborn for signs of infiltration such qu’hypotonie axial suction disorders causing poor weight gain. These signs are reversible, but can last 1-3 weeks depending on the half life of the benzodiazepine prescribed. In large doses, respiratory depression or apnea, and hypothermia may appear reversible in the newborn. In addition, a neonatal abstinence syndrome is possible even in the absence of signs of infiltration. It is particularly characterized by hyperexcitability, restlessness and tremor of the newborn occurring remote delivery. The time of onset depends on the half-life of the drug and may be important when it is long. Given these data, the use of nordazepam is possible during pregnancy regardless of the term, in strict compliance with the indications and dosages. In late pregnancy, it is necessary to establish a treatment nordazepam, avoid prescribing high doses and account for the monitoring of the newborn, the effects described above.
