Mometasone Intranasal Use

Very Low Risk for breastfeeding


Safe. Compatible.
Not risky for breastfeeding or infant.

At latest update, relevant information on excretion into breast milk was not found.

It is unlikely to be excreted in significant amounts into breast milk due to a poor systemic absorption (< 0,1%).

In addition, a high protein-binding capacity makes excretion to be even less likely.

Experts agree with the opinion that topical, oral or inhaled administered steroids are compatible with breastfeeding.
