Methyldopa Breastfeeding Warnings
Limited data from four nursing women who were taking methyldopa 750 to 2,000 mg per day revealed milk concentrations ranging from 0.1 to 0.9 mcg per mL.

Methyldopa is excreted into human milk. Adverse effects in the nursing infant are unlikely. The manufacturer recommends that caution be used when administering methyldopa to nursing women.
