Sevoflurane Levels and Effects while Breastfeeding

Summary of Use during Lactation

There is no published experience with sevoflurane during breastfeeding. Because the serum half-life of sevoflurane in the mother is short and the drug is not expected to be absorbed by the infant, no waiting period or discarding of milk is required. Breastfeeding can be resumed as soon as the mother has recovered sufficiently from general anesthesia to nurse. When a combination of anesthetic agents is used for a procedure, follow the recommendations for the most problematic medication used during the procedure.
