Rosuvastatin while Breastfeeding Unsafe
CAS Number: 147098-20-2
Statin pharmacologically acts by inhibiting cholesterol synthesis. Excretion into breast milk is non-significant. Its low oral biodisponibility makes absorption by the infant unlikely. Influence on alteration of breast milk fat composition is unknown. High amount of cholesterol is required by the infant to ensure appropriate development of nervous system, cell membranes and hormones or vitamin production. Avoiding use while exclusive breastfeeding would be advisable. Atorvastatin is probably safer because of a higher molecular weight that would interfer with excretion into breast milk. Pravastatin has also shown a low excretion. Simvastatin has the lowest oral biodisponibility. Interruption of drug hypercholesterolemia treatment while breastfeeding would probably not affect long-term outcome of the disease. A hypolipidemic diet should be followed.

Levels of rosuvastatin in milk are low, but no relevant published information exists with its use during breastfeeding. The consensus opinion is that women taking a statin should not breastfeed because of a concern with disruption of infant lipid metabolism. However, others have argued that children homozygous for familial hypercholesterolemia are treated with statins beginning at 1 year of age, that statins have low oral bioavailability, and risks to the breastfed infant are low, especially with rosuvastatin and pravastatin. Until more data become available, an alternate drug may be preferred, especially while nursing a newborn or preterm infant.
