Olodaterol Levels and Effects while Breastfeeding

Summary of Use during Lactation

Although no published data exist on the use of olodaterol during lactation, data from the related drug, terbutaline, indicate that very little is expected to be excreted into breastmilk.[1] The authors of several reviews agree that use of inhaled bronchodilators is acceptable during breastfeeding because of the low bioavailability and maternal serum levels after use.[2-4]
