Lactation Safety Information

Propranolol; Metoprolol
For prophylaxis of migraine
Only very limited anecdotal evidence of safety which indicates no adverse effects in a single breastfed infant
Low levels anticipated in milk due to the drug’s properties and likely to be degraded in infant’s GI tract, although very long half-life increases risk of accumulation in breastfed infant
Although large protein molecules may appear in colostrum, risk to preterm infants and neonates is considered to be small and unproven
