Tramazoline Hydrochloride

Low Risk

Moderately safe. Probably compatible. Mild risk possible. Follow up recommended. Read the Comment.

Sympathomimetic drug that is topically used for treatment of nose or the eye.

On last update no relevant published data related to breastfeeding were found.

A small dose together with a low plama level of most nasal and ophthalmologic compounds make that a significant excretion into breast milk would be unlikely.

Avoid high dosing and do not use for longer than 3 days: as an adrenergic agonist drug it could be absorbed and a cause of side effects (vascular hypertension or hypotension, irritability, heart arrhythmia) in both the mother and the infant.

Long term maintained doses may decrease milk production.
