ラクツロース

Very Low Risk for breastfeeding


Safe. Compatible.
Not risky for breastfeeding or infant.

Disaccharide (galactose and fructose) which is barely absorbed by the small intestine and reaches the large intestine (colon) where it exerts its action as an osmotic laxative drug. A small amount that is absorbed is excreted unmodified in the urine.

At latest update were not found published data on excretion into breast milk. However, because it does not reach the mother's plasma, any concentration in the milk is not expected.

Medication with authorized indication in infants.

Alternatives

We do not have alternatives for ラクツロース 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.

Jose Maria Paricio, Founder & President of APILAM/e-Lactancia

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.

José María Paricio, founder of e-lactancia.
