Usually used in combination with Ledispavir in the treatment of hepatitis C.
Since the last update we have not found published data on its excretion in breast milk.
Its pharmacokinetic data (moderately elevated molecular weight, good percentage of protein binding and very short half-life) impedes its passage to breast milk in significant amounts, so although there is disagreement (Thompson 2016), some authors consider that treatment with sofosbuvir, alone or in combination with ledipasvir is not contraindicated during breastfeeding (Spera 2016).
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.
e-lactancia is a resource recommended by Academy of Breastfeeding Medicine - 2012 of United States of America
