Question

I am a breastfeeding mother and i want to know if it is safe to use Doripenem? Is Doripenem safe for nursing mother and child? Does Doripenem extracts into breast milk? Does Doripenem has any long term or short term side effects on infants? Can Doripenem influence milk supply or can Doripenem decrease milk supply in lactating mothers?

Answer by DrLact: About Doripenem usage in lactation

No information is available on the clinical use of doripenem during breastfeeding. Its excretion into breastmilk is likely similar to that of imipenem and meropenem, which produce low levels in milk that are not expected to cause adverse effects in breastfed infants. Occasionally disruption of the infant's gastrointestinal flora, resulting in diarrhea or thrush has been reported with beta-lactams, but these effects have not been adequately evaluated. Doripenem is acceptable in nursing mothers.
