Mild risk possible. Follow up recommended.

Second generation anti-histaminic drug with low sedative effect. Used for ophthalmic and nasal topical administration.

On last update no relevant published data related to breastfeeding were found.

A small dose together with a low plama level of most nasal and ophthalmologic compounds make that a significant excretion into breast milk would be unlikely.
