Very Low Risk

Safe. Compatible. Minimal risk for breastfeeding and infant.

Antibiotic that is used by inhalation for topical treatment of throat and nose infections.

At latest update, relevant published data on excretion into breast milk were not found.

It is not absorbed and does not appear in the plasma, hence it appearance in the human milk is highly unlikely.

Marketed product in many countries though retired licence in others for no proof on effectiveness.

Alternatives

We do not have alternatives for Fusafungine 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.

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.
