Digoxin Immune Fab Levels and Effects while Breastfeeding

Summary of Use during Lactation

No information is available on the clinical use of digoxin immune fab (ovine) during breastfeeding. Because it is a large protein molecule with a molecular weight of about 46,000 Da, the amount in milk is likely to be very low and absorption is unlikely because it is probably destroyed in the infant's gastrointestinal tract.
