Midostaurin Levels and Effects while Breastfeeding

Summary of Use during Lactation

No information is available on the clinical use of midostaurin during breastfeeding. Because midostaurin and its active metabolites are 99.8% bound to plasma proteins, the amount in milk is likely to be low. The manufacturer recommends that breastfeeding be discontinued during midostaurin therapy and for at least 4 months after the last dose. Avoiding breastfeeding is particularly important when midostaurin is given with other cancer chemotherapy agents.
