Very Low Risk
Antihistaminic drug for topical use on the eye.
Since the last update we have not found any published data on its excretion in breast milk.
Like most ophthalmologic compounds for topical use a low dose and poor absorption make it compatible with breastfeeding.
Systemic absorption can be minimized by pressing on the tear duct (inner canthus of the eye) with a finger for 1-2 minutes (Bausch 2018).
We do not have alternatives for Antazoline since it is relatively safe.
Suggestions made at e-lactancia are done by APILAM team of health professionals, and are based on updated scientific publications. It is not intended to replace the relationship you have with your doctor but to compound it. The pharmaceutical industry contraindicates breastfeeding, mistakenly and without scientific reasons, in most of the drug data sheets.
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.
