Bromfenac Levels and Effects while Breastfeeding

Summary of Use during Lactation

Limited data indicate that milk levels of bromfenac are low with the usual oral dosage, but milk levels have not been measured after higher injectable dosages. Use caution when using bromfenac in nursing mothers, especially with the injectable drug.

Maternal use of bromfenac eye drops would not be expected to cause any adverse effects in breastfed infants. To substantially diminish the amount of drug that reaches the breastmilk after using eye drops, place pressure over the tear duct by the corner of the eye for 1 minute or more, then remove the excess solution with an absorbent tissue.
