CAS Number: 83-98-7
Anti-muscarinic analogue agent similar to Diphenhydramine with no sedative effect. Used for the treatment of muscle spasms and Parkinson Disease. At latest update, relevant published data on excretion into breast milk were not found. Its pharmacokinetics (moderately high molecular weight and high protein-binding capacity) makes excretion into breast milk in significant amount be unlikely. Until more data on this medication is available, safer alternative drugs are preferred especially in premature babies or during the neonatal period. Whenever used while breastfeeding take the lowest dose as possible along with a follow-up for somnolence and troubles of the infant with feeding. It is not commercially available in Spain.
During whole lactation period you shall first discuss with your doctor and then together you shall decide whether you shall take that drug or not however if you have already taken Orphenadrine Citrate 60 Mg In 2 Ml then you shall inform your doctor, But you should not be worried too much as Orphenadrine Citrate 60 Mg In 2 Ml comes in category of low risk drug.
Though Orphenadrine Citrate 60 Mg In 2 Ml dose not comes in category of safe drugs rather it comes in category of low risk but if your doctor is aware that you are breastfeeding your baby and has still recommended it then its advantages must be outweighing the risks.
