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.

It is a potassium-sparing diuretic with actions and uses similar to those of amiloride used in the treatment of edema and in the management of hypertension. It is usually associated with hydrochlorothiazide or furosemide. Oral administration once or twice a day.
At the date of the last update we did not find any published data on its excretion in breast milk.
Long-term treatment with diuretic drugs may compromise the state of hydration of the nursing mother. Must make an adjustment (decrease) of the dose based on the estimated milk production and monitor milk production. Use a lower dose as possible, especially during the first postnatal month.
Until more published data is known about this drug in relation to breastfeeding, known safer alternatives are preferable, especially during the neonatal period and in the event of prematurity.
