Suggestions made at e-lactancia are done by APILAM team of health professionals, and are based on updated scientific publications. It is not intended to replace the relationship you have with your doctor but to compound it. The pharmaceutical industry contraindicates breastfeeding, mistakenly and without scientific reasons, in most of the drug data sheets.
Your contribution is essential for this service to continue to exist. We need the generosity of people like you who believe in the benefits of breastfeeding.
Thank you for helping to protect and promote breastfeeding.

At latest update, relevant published data on excretion into breast milk were not found.
A high protein-binding capacity makes excretion into breast milk unlikely. In addition, a low oral bioavailability makes difficult the absorption towards the infant's plasma from ingested milk (Kearney 2018), except in prematures or newborns who may show an increased absorption.
Until more data on this medication is available, safer alternative drugs are preferred (Rowe 2013), especially in premature babies or during the neonatal period.
