Raclopride is a typical antipsychotic related to sulpiride, selective dopaminergic D2 receptor antagonist. Labeled with radioisotopes such as Carbon-11 (Raclopride-11C) it is used in the non-invasive study of degenerative brain diseases by positron emission tomography (PET).
It is excreted in breast milk in small concentrations, much lower than those detected in plasma. (Moses 2005)
The short radioactive half-life of 11C (20.4 minutes) means that no breastfeeding interruption time is required, as noted by international bodies and expert authors. (ACMUI 2019 table 4 p21, IAEA 2018 p283, ICRP 2015 table D1 p320-21, Moses 2005).
We do not have alternatives for Raclopride 11C 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.
