Aceclofenac

Very Low Risk for breastfeeding


Safe. Compatible.
Not risky for breastfeeding or infant.

Antiinflammatory drug that is similar to diclofenac and used in the treatment of rheumatoid arthritis, ankylosing spondylitis and osteoartrirts.

At latest update no published data on excretion into breast milk were found.

Its high plasma protein-binding capacity makes the passage into milk be unlikely.

Diclofenac which is part of the same family of antiinflammatory drugs is excreted in non-significant amount into breast milk.
