Apomorphine Levels and Effects while Breastfeeding

Summary of Use during Lactation

No information is available on the use of apomorphine during breastfeeding. Apomorphine inhibits prolactin release in animals and might interfere with establishment of lactation. The prolactin level in a mother with established lactation may not affect her ability to breastfeed. An alternate drug may be preferred, especially while nursing a newborn or preterm infant.
