I am a breastfeeding mother and i want to know if it is safe to use Dalbavancin? Is Dalbavancin safe for nursing mother and child? Does Dalbavancin extracts into breast milk? Does Dalbavancin has any long term or short term side effects on infants? Can Dalbavancin influence milk supply or can Dalbavancin decrease milk supply in lactating mothers?
If dalbavancin is required by the mother, it is not a reason to discontinue breastfeeding. Because dalbavancin is poorly absorbed orally, it is not likely to reach the bloodstream of the infant or cause any adverse effects in breastfed infants. Monitor the infant for possible effects on the gastrointestinal tract, such as diarrhea, vomiting, and candidiasis (e.g., thrush, diaper rash). However, because there is no published experience with dalbavancin during breastfeeding, an alternate drug may be preferred, especially while nursing a newborn or preterm infant.
