Low Risk for breastfeeding


Moderately safe. Probably compatible.
Mild risk possible. Follow up recommended.

It is a beta-blocking drug topically used for glaucoma.

It is not likely secreted into breast milk. Use it cautiously anyway. Like most ophthalmologic compounds for topical use a low dose and poor absorption make it compatible with breastfeeding.
