Tripelennamine Topical Use

Low Risk

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

It is a first generation antihistaminic and ethylenediamine drug, with a markedly sedative and anti-cholinergic effect, that could inhibit lactation. Usually available only for topical use as an itching-relief drug (doubtfully effective). Avoid using it on the breast or cleanse thoroughly before nursing.

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.
