Antacid | Aluminum Hydroxide, Magnesium Hydroxide, Dimethicone Liquid Breastfeeding Analsys


Aluminum hydroxide while Breastfeeding

Safe

CAS Number: 21645-51-2

Aluminum does not concentrate into breast milk. After ingestion of antacids the Aluminum plasma levels increase from a basal-point of 7 μg/L to 55 μg/L at half-an-hour with a return to previous level 3 hours later. Although a minimal amount of Aluminum may be found in the milk, there are not shown side-effects in the infant. Mother's milk has a mean concentration of 49 μg/L of Aluminum which is much lower than the amount of 180-700 μg/L found in artificial formulas. Because of a low oral bioavailability the pass from the breast milk toward the infant's plasma is hampered, except in premature and newborn infants who may exhibit a higher intestinal absorption due to an increased permeability. Avoid chronic or excessive use. WHO Model List of Essential Medicines 2002: compatible with breastfeeding.

Magnesium hydroxide while Breastfeeding

Safe

CAS Number: 1309-42-8

Ingested Magnesium does not concentrate into breast milk.. Naturally occurring, the mean Magnesium concentration in the milk is 31 mg/L (range 15 – 64 mg/L) and not affected by the ingestion of Magnesium. Because of a low oral bioavailability the pass from the breast milk toward the infant's plasma is hampered, except in premature and newborn infants who may exhibit a higher intestinal absorption due to an increased permeability. Avoid chronic or excessive use. WHO Model List of Essential Medicines 2002: Magnesium hydroxide is compatible with breastfeeding.

Dimethicone while Breastfeeding

Safe

CAS Number: 9006-65-9

Dimethicone is a fluid type of silicone with a methyl as organic group radical. Silicones are polymers of silicon tied to oxygen atoms with high molecular weight (see information on silicone and dimethicone). Dimethicone is water repellent and it is used in creams, dressings for skin protection and pediculicides. An activated form of Dimethicone is Simethicone that is used for treatment of flatulence (see info on Simethicone) At latest update, relevant published data on excretion into breast milk were not found. Because it is not absorbed through the skin or orally along with a high molecular weight, excretion into breast milk in significant amount or absorption by the infant gut is highly unlikely.

Magnesium hydroxide while Breastfeeding

CAS Number: 1309-42-8

A study on the use of magnesium hydroxide during breastfeeding found no adverse reactions in breastfed infants. Intravenous magnesium increases milk magnesium concentrations only slightly. Oral absorption of magnesium by the infant is poor, so maternal magnesium hydroxide is not expected to affect the breastfed infant's serum magnesium. Magnesium hydroxide supplementation during pregnancy might delay the onset of lactation, but it can be taken during breastfeeding and no special precautions are required.
