Ezogabine Levels and Effects while Breastfeeding

Summary of Use during Lactation

Because no information is available on use of ezogabine during breastfeeding, an alternate drug may be preferred, especially while nursing a newborn or preterm infant. If ezogabine is required by the mother, it is not necessarily a reason to discontinue breastfeeding, but monitor the infant for drowsiness, agitation, adequate weight gain, and developmental milestones, especially in younger, exclusively breastfed infants and when using combinations of drugs.
