Mosapride Citrate

Low Risk

Moderately safe. Probably compatible. Mild risk possible. Follow up recommended. Read the Comment.

Mosapride, a substituted benzamide, is a prokinetic drug that increases gastrointestinal motility and accelerates gastric emptying. Used in gastritis and gastroesophageal reflux. Oral administration.

At the date of the last update we did not find any published data on its excretion in breast milk.

Its pharmacokinetic data (very high percentage of protein binding and moderately high molecular weight) make it highly unlikely that significant quantities will pass into breast milk.

No cardiac arrhythmias have been reported in patients treated with mosaprida, unlike what happens with a similar drug, cisapride. (Tack 2012, Cho 2004, Endo 2002)

Until more published data is known about this drug in relation to breastfeeding, known safer alternatives are preferable, especially during the neonatal period and in the event of prematurity.


See below the information of this related product:

  • Cisapride (Moderately safe. Probably compatible. Mild risk possible. Follow up recommended. Read the Comment.)

Alternatives

  • Domperidone ( Safe. Compatible. Minimal risk for breastfeeding and infant.)
  • Metoclopramide ( Safe. Compatible. Minimal risk for breastfeeding and infant.)
  • Omeprazole ( Safe. Compatible. Minimal risk for breastfeeding and infant.)

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.
