Benzamide-type drug that is similar to Cisapride.
At latest update no published data on excretion into breast milk were found.
Drug that is poorly documented in the scientific literature. It seems to be lacking of side effects (QT-interval prolongation, cardiac arrhythmias) that led to the withdrawal of Cisapride.
Until more published information about this drug regarding breastfeeding appears, it may be preferable a known and safer alternative, especially during the neonatal period and in cases of prematurity.
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.
