Barbiturate with hypnotic and sedative properties.
It has been used in insomnia. Its use has been replaced by other drugs with less risk of abuse/dependence, overdose and withdrawal syndrome (Suddock 2020).
At the date of the last update, there was no available published data on its excretion in breast milk.
Product with very few bibliographic references and marketed in few countries.
Until more published data on this drug is known in relation to breastfeeding, known safer alternatives may be preferable, especially during the neonatal period and in the event of prematurity.
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.
e-lactancia is a resource recommended by Academy of Breastfeeding Medicine - 2012 of United States of America
