Not risky for breastfeeding or infant.
Like most ophthalmologic compounds for topical use a low dose and poor absorption make it compatible with breastfeeding. Systemic absorption is minimal. There have not been problems except when a maternal overdose was absorbed.
We do not have alternatives for Brimonidine since it is relatively safe.
Suggestions made at e-lactancia are done by APILAM´s pediatricians and pharmacists, and are based on updated scientific publications.
It is not intended to replace the relationship you have with your doctor but to compound it.
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.
