  Many antianxiety drugs, antidepressants, and mood stabilizers appear in low concentrations in human milk, with estimated relative infant doses less than 2% of weight-adjusted maternal dose and/or milk-plasma ratios less than 1. 13 However, the percentage of maternal doses that approach clinically significant levels (10% or more) have been Cited by: Start studying Quiz Questions Pharmacology Midterm.

  The excretion of lamotrigine in breast milk is largely variable. A study on 30 breastfeeding women, treated for more than 7 days with lamotrigine at doses – mg/day, showed that breast milk samples collected over 24 h contained μg/mL of lamotrigine [ Cited by: In addition, milk is slightly more acidic than plasma (pH of milk is approximately and plasma is ) allowing weakly basic drugs to transfer more readily into breast milk and become trapped secondary to ionisation. Milk composition varies within and between feeds and this may also affect transfer of drugs into breast milk.

There would be small variations of time for various drugs to be excreted in the breast milk. It is dependent on the absorption from the intestine. But most of the drugs would be present in around hours period in breast milk if they are eliminated via it also (kidney, liver, sweat/skin are the other main eliminating organs of the body). INTRODUCTION. A statement on the transfer of drugs and chemicals into human milk was first published in , 1 with revisions in 2 and 3 Information continues to become available. The current statement is intended to revise the lists of agents transferred into human milk and describe their possible effects on the infant or on lactation, if known (Tables 1–7).

Breast milk is a quantitatively relatively minor route of drug excretion. Nevertheless, it is clinically important for breastfeeding mothers and their infants. The baby will ingest drugs excreted in the breast milk. Moreover, breast milk has a lower pH than plasma. Accordingly, basic drugs will be concentrated in the breast milk through the.

Most drugs are not of concern in breastfeeding. In addition, most lactating women take few medicines, and then only occasionally. Further, even though virtually all drugs are transferred into breast milk to some extent, the amount of drug is usually small and unlikely to cause an adverse effect on the by: Both physicians and the lay public raise questions about drug excretion in breast milk.

Neither the excretion of dextromethorphan in milk nor its effect on breastfed infants have been studied. It is unlikely that with usual maternal doses amounts in breastmilk would harm the nursing infant, especially in infants over 2 months of age. It is best to avoid the use of products with a high alcohol content while nursing.

Sweat, tears, reproductive fluids (such as seminal fluid), and breast milk can also contain drugs Excretion of drugs in breast milk book byproducts/metabolites of drugs. This can pose a toxic threat, such as the exposure of an infant to breast milk containing drugs or byproducts of drugs ingested by the mother.

Previous reports on the excretion of I into human breast milk have recommended discontinuance of breast feeding from 1 to 12 days following diagnostic tracer doses of I. On day 5 of therapy after taking 2 doses of lorazepam in the previous 8 hours, her lorazepam milk level was mcg/L.

On day 6 after having taken 3 doses in the previous 24 hours, her milk lorazepam level was 89 mcg/L.
